TITLE: Low-cost, Flexible Displays using Nanoscale Droplets

SPEAKERS: Dr. Mateusz Bryning, CTO, Zikon

ABSTRACT:
Zikon’s display technology uses nano-droplets of colored ink to create images on paper like substrates. Images can be changed by application of low voltages, which move the polarizable nano-droplets within the “paper” substrate under a combination of dipolar and/or electrophoretic forces. Unlike traditional electrophoretic e-paper displays, the technology requires no microencapsulation of the droplets, and is amenable to reflective as well as transmissive/transparent displays. Additional benefits include low-voltage operation and simplified “print-shop” display module manufacturing. The technology is particularly well suited to the needs of the $20B electronic shelf label market by offering a low cost, low voltage, low power consumption display that also has a sharp, paperlike appearance. The talk will describe our growing understanding of nano-droplet properties and the complex behaviors they can exhibit in electric fields, as well as progress toward manufacturing of low-cost shelf label displays.

SPEAKER BIOGRAPHY:
Dr. Mateusz Bryning, Chief Technology Officer of Zikon, is a physicist with ten years of experience in discovering, developing and transferring new technology into application. He specializes in emerging technologies in nanotechnology, complex fluids, and advanced materials. He is Principal Investigator on NSF SBIR Phase II grant that partly supports Zikon’s development efforts. Dr. Bryning is also a Core Team consultant with SmallTech Consulting and serves as Adjunct Faculty at San Jose State University, where he teaches laboratory courses in MEMS and microfluidics and co-advises several students. Dr. Bryning holds a Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Pennsylvania, where his research focused on carbon nanotube networks.
