Printed Electronics – Small Inks, Big Sustainability
2020-12-16 @ 10:00 - 11:00
KTH Docent Seminar
Speaker: Jiantong Li, KTH EECS
Due to their unique two-dimensional atomic crystal structure, graphene and its analogues often simultaneously possess multiple excellent properties to enable novel applications that can hardly be realized by traditional materials. On the other hand, various ink-based printing techniques have become more and more popular in electronics because of their simple processing and high cost efficiency. In this lecture, I will discuss about our recent efforts on the combination between graphene and printing techniques to develop new technologies to contribute to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (Agenda 2030). Tiny 3D-structured supercapacitors will be printed for on-chip integrated energy storage components to enable emerging electronics, such as implanted electronics, aiming to contribute to health and well-being applications. Graphene-based hydrovoltaic devices will be fabricated to harvest energy from ocean waves for clean and renewable energy. Graphene-enabled lightweight devices for thermal management are under development in order to ultimately contribute to the reduction of carbon dioxide emission. Inkjet printed vertical graphene will be used as antimicrobial coatings for health and clean water applications.
Dr. Jiantong Li received his PhD degree from KTH Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden) in 2010. He is now Assistant Professor in Printed Electronics at KTH. His research interest includes inkjet printing and 3D printing of graphene and 2D materials for electronics and energy storage applications. He has published several papers in the relevant journals, such as Advanced Materials, ACS Nano, and Physical Review. His recent efforts are also extended to the development of versatile graphene inks for industry applications, including heat conduction, water purification, sensors and energy storage. He has received more than 10 research grants as Principle Investigator in Sweden. He was awarded the Göran Gustafsson Prize in 2014 and Marie Skłodowska Curie INCA Fellowship in 2015.
