Abstract:

In the recently concluded STTR Phase I Topic OSD10-T005,"Roll to Roll Inkjet Printing of Sub-wavelength Photonic Devices", SI2 Technologies, Inc (SI2) and partner University of Illinois Urbana Champaign (UIUC) successfully demonstrated a low cost, lithographic free manufacturing capability for integrating submicron-to- millimeter electronic-photonic devices on flexible substrates. Using this world-class team, the Phase II will leverage SI2"s Direct Write Inkjet expertise and UIUC"s E-jet technology to innovatively deliver: 1) first of its kind demonstration of E-jet / Inkjet submicron-to-millimeter roll to roll printing, 2) unique electronic circuitry enabled by E-jet Si-Nanomembranes, 3) novel lithographic free electro-optic chromophore and 4) a new print and plate manufacturing capability for flex. A detailed prototype design package for a fully automated, high throughput submicron-to-millimeter Inkjet / E-jet roll to roll coating machine will be completed. Demonstration of this manufacturing approach will include multiple hardware deliverables.
