While BASF has significant chemistry expertise, it needed to integrate electronics into its materials to capture value-added opportunities with customers in the display market.
Dowa had significant materials expertise and in-house R&D, but lacked the knowledge to manufacture and develop an emerging product category of LED-based products.
PARC scientists delivered the key components for a tape-like blast dosimeter with integrated memory, control electronics, and multiple sensors – which could be fabricated through printing techniques or be compatible with roll-to-roll processing (key for enabling the novel form factors and low cost), and be customized to specific application needs.
PARC offers a proven co-extrusion priting technique, CoEx, that can enhance both the energy and power densities of batteries. A cost-effective way to manufacture structured electrodes, this technique can be applied to both cathodes and anodes for most mature batter chemistries.
