Hartman’s research on printed carbon nanotubes on supercapacitors intriguing and well-presented

FlexTech Alliance today announced the winners of the Student Poster Session at the 2012 Flex Conference. Taking home the first place prize was Alexandra Hartman of Clemson University for her poster entitled “Printing Carbon Nanotubes Based on Supercapacitors for Packaging”. Second place was awarded to Dania Alsaid from Western Michigan University for a poster on Gravure Printing of ITO Transparent Electrodes for Applications in Printed Electronics. Third place was awarded to Stephanie Maxwell from Arizona State University for a poster on Real Time Detection of Trace Targets in Water Supplies Using PharmaFLEX-screen Printed Electronics.

Judged by a distinguished, but anonymous, panel of 6 academicians and industry representatives from the flexible and printed electronics and display industry, the session had 10 posters with students from 8 different institutions submitting posters/papers. Posters were judged on 6 criteria: originality of work, significance of work, references of work to others, organization and completeness of poster, clarity in tables, graphics, figures, and quality of oral presentation.

The 11th annual Flex Conference is hosted every February by FlexTech Alliance and gathers over 550 professionals engaged in the flexible and printed electronics and displays industries. This fast-growing segment of the electronics industry is on a path to break out of the rigid electronics paradigm and enable flexible, less-intrusive, and potentially less-expensive electronics for lighting, sensors, wearable medical devices, and other potential applications not yet envisioned. The event encompasses a technical conference with 114 papers presented, a 57 company exhibition, short courses, social and networking events and a golf tournament.
