The doctoral study will be conducted at Division of Electronics and Embedded Systems at KTH. This research focuses on developing printing processes to fabricate sustainable electronic devices. Functional inks will be formulated with emerging materials, such as conductive 2D materials (especially graphene and MXenes), quantum dots, conducting or semiconducting polymers, and polyelectrolytes. Inkjet printing and direct ink writing processes will be developed to directly print the functional inks onto various substrates to fabricate microscale devices for electronics, energy storage, and/or energy harvesting applications.
The project is financed by an EU grant and involves collaboration with a large consortium consisting of both academia and industry partners from various countries.
