However I don't think it needs to be 2-3 years to market for this new version of CFQD Fine Colour Film, I suspect less than 1 year should be expected to market because they no longer have to deal with the same initial learning curve, and the relationships with OEMs are already in place etc. ME even said it takes about 1 year for the original version to get to market after the iterative process for each OEM, so it will most likely be less for this new version, as the principle is the same.
I'd guess 2-3 years is more likely to be the timescale relevant for whatever next gen tech they're working on such as the Kyulux collab with hybrid OLED/CFQD and to start rolling that out to market.
I don't expect one from the new technology given the current generation has taken 2 to 3 years to get to market. Think the market wants to see revenues so hopefully the launch of these new monitors will provide it. If income then provides reassurance of the long term survival of the company then I would expect investors to start getting excited about the new stuff.
New graphene ink pushes the boundaries of product development
graphene optoelectronic ink OLED batteries
Sometimes a European project is not limited to achieving the goals it has set for itself, but exceeds them. HIGRAPHINK is an example. Its revolutionary graphene ink, highly conductive, should be used for applications ranging from optoelectronics to composites, batteries and flexible OLED devices.
Originally, the HIGRAPHINK (Highly Conductive Graphene Ink) roadmap was limited to demonstrating the viability of graphene as an additive for organic semiconductor materials, in order to make OLED displays to validate the principle . But the project was so successful in producing graphene with properties previously unimaginable that its host, the University of Cambridge, decided to limit itself to preparing this technology for commercialization.
"This is probably the main difficulty encountered during this project," recalls Andrea Ferrari, director of the Cambridge Graphene Center and project coordinator. "At one point, we had to decide, based on the progress we had made, to focus on the issues related to the production of our graphene ink and to stop exploring the other options we had discussed before. "
But who could blame them? Only two and a half years after the launch of the project, and six months after completion, HIGRAPHINK produced a material with a 100% exfoliation rate, compared to only 1% before the project team started its operations. works. The new ink has a mobility 10 times higher than the inks currently used in OLEDs. The industry can now produce tens of thousands of liters a year, whereas it could only expect daily quantities of a few milligrams before the results of HIGRAPHINK have their effect.
"To achieve this, we started with graphite and we used a technique called microfluidization: we pass graphite through tiny channels applying a very high shear pressure. This very powerful shear separates the graphite flakes and we obtain a yield considerably higher than that which one could reach before this project. We now have highly conductive inks with low film resistance that can be printed on various substrates and with inaccessible properties before the project starts. "
The team tested the new material in various devices. In particular, researchers have created high-speed lasers by incorporating ink into polymers over an optical fiber. They also used this material to modulate light in the terahertz range, which is the first step to create super-fast terahertz lasers. They have created cameras that can be photo-switched, and even new memory devices. "We have also been able to extend this technique to other layered materials, such as phosphorene or boron nitride," Pr Ferrari enthuses.
As a result, the number of possible applications now seems unlimited. HIGRAPHINK led to the creation of a spin-off company called Cambridge Graphene Ltd, which was recently acquired by Versarien, a UK-based company exploiting new materials to create innovative engineering solutions. The material is also available for sale in the Sigma-Aldrich catalog, which is now owned by Merck.
"Our intention was to create a graphene with sufficient properties to be able to use it with some flexibility in the transistors. This goal has also been achieved, and we are now working with a company called FlexEnable to integrate our material into the design of future OLED displays, "adds Pr Ferrari.
If Cambridge University professor of nanotechnology admits that it is difficult to predict what will be the most popular use of this graphene ink, he believes it can be used in flexible and foldable coatings, composites, detectors or energy storage devices.
"We have succeeded in developing a new technique for creating large quantities of high quality ink. This means there is potential for applications in demanding industries, ranging from batteries to supercapacitors, screens, flexible electroni
I am invested but not following so this news comes as a surprise. Are we now offering grass colour of your choice, or maybe cinder running track. I guess these grass purveyors/ stadium outfitters also do CCTV??
something was indeed cooking Alltold but the s/p reaction has been underwhelming so far to this mornings news.. somewhat understandable as more r&d type business than hard core bottom line meaningful type.... but perhaps all such activity will prove very useful in achieveing future success(es).... I like this share and guess it will be commercially successful in the not too distant future.. but my goodnes it will have factorially taken it's time to get there, if and when it does...
"I remain confident about the relevance of our technology in display and other markets, including Life Sciences and Specialised Lighting, as well as our ability to execute and deliver orders and sales, and I remain positive about the prospects for the Group."
Over 3% of NANO's stock is shorted and I strongly believe there are many orders in the pipeline, no longer waiting for the displays but for integrated TV packages to complete their trials ahead of production releases very soon now.
