This paper presents several of the very latest developments in equipment, process, and materials resulting from the collaboration between Carpe Diem Technologies and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Tool developments to be reviewed include the commissioning of a roll-to-roll (R2R) spatial atomic layer deposition tool, a R2R nanoimprint tool capable of patterning polymer, hybrid and inorganic materials, a direct write integrated lithography and interferometry tool and a R2R inkjet printing tool with inline photonic cure. We will also describe innovative materials systems that combined with the tools offer next generation capabilities for printed functional materials and devices. These tools are part of a new, open access, large area print and roll-to-roll manufacturing demonstration facility at UMass Amherst.
