MANCHESTER, England, Feb. 23, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — SmartKem, Inc. (OTCQB: SMTK), an organization searching for to reshape the world of electronics with a revolutionary semiconductor platform that allows a brand new technology of shows, has immediately introduced its participation in a groundbreaking partnership of European expertise companies and analysis establishments. The collaborative Hello-Accµracy challenge brings collectively eleven of probably the most revolutionary and forward-thinking firms within the trade in a bid to determine the subsequent technology of Natural and Massive Space Electronics (OLAE) – together with Natural Skinny Movie Transistors (OTFT) and Electroluminescent Quantum Dot Gentle Emitting Diode (EL-QD-LED) primarily based shows.

SmartKem’s function will embody creating an OTFT back-plane upon which consortium member Fraunhofer IAP will print a QD-LED front-plane. The backplane utilises a compact, two transistor one capacitor (2T1C) circuit. Q-LED supplies will likely be added to the front-plane utilizing excessive decision Electro-Static Jet (ESJET) printing. The ensuing 300ppi RGB show will showcase the efficiency of SmartKem’s vary of TRUFLEX® supplies when used at the side of micron scale additive patterning processes and low temperature processing circumstances. SmartKem believes its expertise has the potential to allow the sustainable manufacture of top quality, sturdy, versatile shows at low price. SmartKem are additionally working with consortium member VTT within the challenge to adapt their OSC inks for compatibility with extremely environment friendly reverse offset printing (ROP) processes.

Dr Simon Ogier, Chief Know-how Officer at SmartKem commented “We’re happy to hitch the Hello-Accµracy challenge, which can spotlight the potential of excessive decision printing for making emissive shows pushed by resolution processed Natural Transistors.”

The Hello-Accµracy challenge is concentrating on the massive printed, versatile and natural electronics international market. This market, dominated by shows, is estimated at €28.3bn with an annual progress charge of better than 8%1. Overseen by an advisory board made up of Sony, Huawei and Polar, the challenge provides Europe the chance to make a step-change past the applied sciences presently utilised within the Far-East – creating precious mental property along with new manufacturing and job alternatives. Hello-Accµracy has obtained funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 analysis and innovation programme below grant settlement No. 862410. Particulars of the challenge will be discovered at

HI-ACCµRACY goals to ship the subsequent technology of enormous space manufacture of versatile OLAE constructions corresponding to natural Skinny Movie Transistors (OTFTs) and Electroluminescent Quantum Dot Gentle Emitting Diode (EL-QD-LED) shows, to μm-scale characteristic measurement printable onto versatile substrates. That is aimed on the giant and excisting printed, versatile and natural electronics international market, estimated at €28.3bn with an annual progress charge of >8% which is especially dominated by shows. HI-ACCµRACY will show front- and back-plane constructions with characteristic sizes approaching 1 μm utilizing low price supplies that may function at frequencies of >1MHz. This will likely be achieved via a novel vary of cutting-edge supplies and printing inks, together with inherently scalable, cost-effective printing and deposition approaches, which have non vacuum or minimal vacuum requirement. Supplies corresponding to EL-QD-LED materials stacks with multilayer barrier layers that may obtain the required WVTR and oxygen transmission charges, novel natural semiconductors and conductive inks that may be produced at low price with minimal environmental affect are being developed.

HI-ACCµRACY is an formidable challenge representing a pan-European EU consortium of world main analysis centres and cutting-edge SMEs that need to develop and commercialise these applied sciences of European origin.

The ultimate challenge demonstrators produced will likely be validated on the industrial services of one of many SME companions and the following shows being additional processed and examined by the end-user companions of their testing services (TRL5).
