The European project NANOSTACK is evolving properly in terms of evaluation of nanomaterials for their possible use in advanced devices, as revealed in the 28-month follow-up meeting that was held on December 12th by teleconference and where the partners presented the results obtained in the last 6 months of work.
More concretely, partners have discussed topics related with printing and characterization of different stacks with specific structures and functionalities. For example, studying their electric and conductive properties, regarding their potential as capacitors; as well as the pyramidal printing of several layers to obtain first OLED diodes. Also, project partners have been organising the future work including not only technical deliverables, but also global management as well as dissemination and exploitation activities.
TECNAN has been the partner focused on the production, at mid-scale, of more common metallic oxide nanoparticles as TiO2 and Fe2O3. Materials intended for the development of n-type semiconductors and batteries, respectively. Additionally, thanks to its wide expertise in the deposition of coatings, TECNAN has closely collaborated with Lurederra in the selection of additives and process optimization to obtain more homogeneous layers on donor slides before printing process.
