Eikos’ Invisicon® carbon nanotube transparent conductive coatings win award from R&D Magazine
Franklin, MA | Posted on May 25, 2006
Eikos Inc., the pioneer developer of highly transparent carbon nanotube (CNT) inks for easily manufacturing transparent conductive coatings and circuits has one of the “25 most innovative products of 2006”, according to R&D Magazine’s Micro/Nano Newsletter,
Eikos’ transparent conductive coating technology, branded Invisicon® has a broad range of application in the electronics field, including flat panel displays, OLED lighting, and solar cells. In each case, Invisicon® acts as a superior alternative to traditional transparent conductive layers, including Indium Tin Oxide (ITO).
The inaugural MICRO/NANO 25 Competition, held by MICRO/NANO Newsletter, resulted in Eikos’ Invisicon® coating being found among the most innovative and groundbreaking technologies of 2006. Invisicon® also received an accolade as an environmentally-friendly material in R&D Magazine’s 43rd annual R&D 100 Awards in 2005.
According to Joe Piché, founder and president of Eikos, “R&D magazine is one of the most prestigious publications in the research area and it is quite an honor to be recognized two years consecutively for our technology. We’re excited about the many applications currently in development that our technology can enhance.”
Invisicon® is featured in the July 2006 issue of MICRO/NANO Newsletter as well as the August 2006 issue of R&D Magazine.
Eikos, Inc. is a developer and manufacturer of highly transparent carbon nanotube inks for conductive coatings and circuits for use in solar cells, flat panel displays, OLED lighting, smart windows and other established markets. Eikos' patented InvisiconR transparent conductors ('nanowires') will enable high volume, low cost production of a thinner, more flexible and more durable conductive coating technology that will displace Indium Tin Oxide (ITO), Zinc Oxide, PEDOT/PSS, and other transparent conductors.
A privately held company headquartered in Franklin Massachusetts, Eikos has a number of licenses and development contracts with major global companies, U.S. military agencies and NASA.
