Skoltech professor Albert Nasibulin and Ph.D. student Evgenia Gilshteyn from Skoltech’s Laboratory of Nanomaterials took part at the LOPEC conference in Munich, which is the biggest international exhibition and conference for the printed electronics industry. In the event they presented novel results in wearable, printable and stretchable electronics with their poster talk.
Nasibulin and Gilshteyn presented their poster as part of the scientific conference, which is the forum where scientists can discuss the latest concepts and results of their research. We asked Gilshteyn to tell about the presentation and the event. “The topic of our poster was “stretchable electronic devices based on carbon nanotubes”, and the discussion around our poster was quit massive. On the other hand – this conference was a great opportunity to find some new collaborations – with Germany, Israel, Belgium and others, in order to make some joint researches. In addition, it was very interesting to visit the technical conference, which was geared towards industry and applications, as well as promoting the ongoing development of products and business sectors”.
With roughly 200 presentations from about 30 different countries, the LOPEC conference is the world’s leading communication platform for research, knowledge, and solutions in the emerging field of printed electronics industry. This year the conference focused specifically on the challenges that arise when technologies are transformed into marketable applications. The discussions focused on the following sectors: wearables trend, automotive industry and consumer electronics.
Nasibulin and Gilshteyn were the only representative from Russia in the whole event. We hope to see greater Skoltech and Russian presence in future conferences related to this blooming technological area.
