Fraunhofer IWS Dresden scientists print electronic layers with polymer ink

Micro energy harvesters for the Internet of Things

Press release (No. 12) - Fraunhofer IWS Dresden /

Thin organic layers provide machines and equipment with new functions. They enable, for example, tiny energy recuperators. In future, these will be installed on pipes or other surfaces in order to convert waste heat into electricity. The experts at the Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology IWS Dresden use ink based on conductive polymers for this purpose.
