Electronics Interconnection webinar series



NPL's Electronics Interconnection Group is presenting a new series of technical webinars in 2018.

This Group is internationally recognised for its practical and innovative work on lead-free reliability, PCB interconnection failures, tin whisker migration and conformal coating research.

These FREE online webinars provide the opportunity to draw on years of practical experience without the participant needing to leave his/her desk – to participate, all that is needed is a phone line and Internet access. Please note that registration is essential.

The majority of webinars run for between 60–90 minutes (and is limited to 100 delegate/company registrations). After the webinar, participants receive a copy of all of the slides and a listing of all relevant technical reports which can be downloaded for FREE.

Please note that all webinars are at UK time - check local time in other countries here

Performance and Lifetime of Printed Semiconductors
Presented by Dr Sebastian Wood

Tuesday 15 May 2018 (14:30 hrs UK time)

Book your place here

Printed semiconducting materials have great potential for a range of electronic applications, particularly where large active areas or flexible/stretchable devices are required. This class of materials is expanding rapidly, with specific interest currently in organic semiconductors and hybrid organic-inorganic lead-halide perovskites. As these materials begin to see commercial uptake, their short operational lifetime has become a critical limitation. NPL has developed a suite of tools for monitoring and understanding the degradation mechanisms affecting these devices in order to guide their ongoing development.
