ACI Alchemy Conductive Inks -Enabling Next Generation Flexible & 3D Electronics
ACI will introduce to the world its Alchemy Conductive Inks. These high-performance printable conductors allow PTF ink like ease of use and processing with fired/sintered thick film electrical performance. The talk will describe some of the overall benefits of using these materials in manufacture of flexible and 3D printed electronics including:
low volume resistivity and sheet resistance
higher current carrying capacity
lower cost per ohm square in use
superior crease ability of narrow traces
formulation latitude from viscous paste to sprayable
Several examples will be presented including
3D circuit structures
high resolution traces
high power density busbars
reflow solder ability

Towards Natively Flexible ICs
Conventional silicon technology has embedded at least one integrated circuit into every smart device on Earth. However, it faces key challenges to make everyday objects smarter. Cost is the most important factor but flexibility and conformability are highly desirable.
Our approach is to develop integrated circuits using flexible electronic fabrication techniques, thus paving the way towards natively-flexible LSI and VLSI ICs.

Printed Electronics made with Digital Printing: Materials and Applications in Motor Sport
Digital printing has clearly established itself for graphics printing, thanks to the advantages it offers over traditional processes like screen printing. More recently, digital printing started morphing into digital manufacturing and also Printed Electronics is taking advantage of that evolution. In this talk we will review Agfa's digital conductive inks based on nanomaterials, and highlight some features of newly developed inks. In the second part of the talk, Nanogate Netherlands will discuss the application of additive digital manufacturing in motor sport products.

Advanced screen printing for PE: two case studies of industrial applications in medical and display
After completing the Material Engineering studies in 2004, Francesca decided to pursue the Academic career by undertaking a PhD in Material Science and Engineering, with main focus on nano and bio technologies. In parallel established a 5 years collaboration with the Dentistry Department in order to increase the knowledge and awareness about dental materials in this sector.
In 2008 decided to leave the Academic path to jump into the entrepreneurial adventure and joining full-time the start-up Genefinity, a spin-off of the University of Trieste, which she founded in 2005 together with 3 other PhD colleagues. The company grew successfully for about 10 years by developing specific competences on thin films depositions, mainly PVD and ALD techniques, with main markets biomedical, food, solar and cosmetic.
In 2016, decided to jump into a new adventure and joined Applied Materials Italy as Business Developer, with the main target to expand the current solar market to other sector of the printed electronics.
