Alpha’s Rahul Raut to speak on opportunities for graphene in the electronics industry at IDTechEx in Santa Clara
Alpha Assembly Solutions, a leading global supplier of innovative electronic assembly materials, is participating in the IDTechEx Show taking place on November 15th-16th in Santa Clara, California. Alpha will be exhibiting jointly with MacDermid Performance Solutions at Booth #I15.
Rahul Raut, Director of Strategy & Technology Acquisition for Alpha, was invited as a guest speaker to present on opportunities for graphene in the electronics industry. His presentation will discuss the major opportunities and challenges for graphene-based products in real-world applications and then highlight methods that have been developed through collaboration with the National Graphene Institute (NGI) at the University of Manchester that will help overcome these challenges.
“Currently, one major challenge is the ability to produce high quality graphene engineered or tailored for specific applications, in a scalable high-volume manufacturing (HVM) method”, said Rahul Raut. “Alpha’s work with NGI has led to the development of a HVM capable synthesis method that engineers large size graphene flakes which, when made from this process, possess a unique combination of properties that make them suitable for use in electronic materials and other related applications.”
Alpha’s exhibit will include the ALPHA® Graphene Portfolio consisting of inks, pastes and foils, in addition to ALPHA® Products for Flexible, Formable and Printed Electronics, such as Silver, Carbon and Dielectric inks and Low-temperature solder pastes.
