Janos Veres leads PARC's Novel and Printed Electronics Program, exploring the Future of Electronics. His primary interest is in radically new manufacturing concepts: merging micro and macro to create electronics in new form factors, thus “freeing electronics from the box.” This includes large area, flexible, conformal image sensors and detector arrays for medical imaging or security applications; flexible, hybrid electronics using printing as a manufacturing technique for customized Internet of Things (IoT) devices; smart inks taking 2D and 3D printing beyond shapes and colors, adding electronics functionalities to automotive or wearable devices; and electronics that can configure themselves from microchip inks, dynamically change shape, or disintegrate on command.
Janos builds partnerships with material makers, printing, electronics and consumer product firms to create the next generation of electronics, while concurrently finding immediate commercialization opportunities.
Before joining PARC, Janos was CTO at PolyPhotonix, where he helped establish the company as a provider of OLED light therapy devices. Prior to that, he was at Eastman Kodak as Program Manager, creating new technology opportunities for displays and electronics manufacturing, such as atmospheric atomic layer deposition (ALD) tools, roll-coating and flexography. He also worked on specialty chemicals as a Business Research Associate at Merck, Avecia and Zeneca, where he managed joint development projects with major electronic and printing OEMs, leading to several world’s-first demonstrators. Janos started his career at Gestetner Byfleet (GBL), where he was responsible for developing organic photoreceptors. At GBL, he set up unique production lines for automated solution coating.
Janos holds a Ph.D. in Solid State Electronics from Imperial College, London. An author on over 30 patents and 50 publications, he published key findings in the physics of organic semiconductors and novel electronics devices.
Janos is an entrepreneurial technologist. His experience in corporate and startup technology firms make him passionate about the future of innovation and the democratization of manufacturing.
