Electron-beam curing for battery production offers potential solutions Paid Members Public
It is no secret that batteries have become intrinsic to everyday life. Batteries have made mobile technology possible – from the flashlight to the Walkman to the cellphone – and, in turn, technology has demanded battery development keep pace.
Coating-process digitalization opportunities created by absolute, in-process, coating-thickness measurement data Paid Members Public
This article discusses some of the coating-process digitization opportunities created by real-time measurement of coating-thickness measurement data, especially by using a precise and absolute thickness-measurement technology known as ruggedized optical interference (ROI) technology.
Alternatives to nuclear sensors for on-line web-gauging of weight / thickness measurement Paid Members Public
The traditional method for the on-line measurement of extruded / cast films, extrusion coatings, solution and hot-melt coatings and nonwovens has been the use of one or more Beta Transmission Sensors.
Roll-to-Roll Production of Perovskite Solar Cells Paid Members Public
Presented by Thad Druffel, University of Louisville The perovskite technology has been touted as a huge economic opportunity because the thin films can be deposited using low temperature solution phase processes that can be easily scaled to roll-to-roll platforms. The Conn Center for Renewable Energy Research has been exploring the
Rapid Thin Film Structure Development Enabled by Advanced R2R Equipment Design, Automation and In-Situ Monitoring Paid Members Public
Presented by Mike Simmons, Intellivation Mike Simmons, Intellivation, Loveland CO Mark George, Plasma Thin Films, Phoenix AZ Development of vacuum deposited layers for new applications requires a transition from small volume (sheets, wafers) to larger volume roll to roll (R2R) while maintaining process parameters and precision deposition. The ability to
