Project Description

Printed electronics refer to electrical devices that are fabricated on various substrates using a set of printing methods. Common printing methods such as screen printing, flexography, gravure, offset lithography, inkjet, and slot-die coating are employed to manufacture printed electronic devices. From an industrial point of view these are low-cost and scalable processes to fabricate electronic devices. Typical electronic and optoelectronic devices such as transistors, light emitting diodes, solar cells, etc. are fabricated by depositing electrically functional electronic or optical inks on various substrates. It is expected that printed electronics will further advance application of cost-effective and solution-processable electronic devices in flexible displays, smart labels, wearable electronics, internet of things (IoT), smart-buildings, etc., and significantly alter the consumer electronics industry.
The purpose of this project is to establish a state-of-the-art research laboratory and training center for flexible and printed optoelectronics at Nazarbayev University (NU) through research and development (R&D) of electrically functional electronic inks and printed perovskite solar cells (PSCs) on rigid and flexible substrates. Objectives and outcomes of the proposal is crafted to enable a gradual build-up of research and manufacturing potential at NU with the aim to further diversify its ongoing PV research activities towards light-weight thin film printed optoelectronic devices.
