Extruding Innovation -- From Emerging Tech to Enabling Platform
Conferences & Talks


19 October 2011
MIT New Media Lab, Cambridge, Massachusetts



Making cleantech a commercial reality through emerging technologies requires more than just invention. Technologies need to be optimized along multiple dimensions, from performance and manufacturability, to market and cost. Borrowing from the practices of the printing industry -- as well as  the principles behind toothpaste dispensers! -- PARC invented a novel  printing method that addresses benefits in these multiple dimensions. The  resulting technology platform enables low-cost, manufacturing-ready,  simultaneous printing of multiple materials into microscale geometric structures that can address multiple applications -- from  higher-efficiency solar cells, to affordable energy storage for EVs,  without the typical power-energy tradeoffs.
