Silk Displays Presents at Nanotech 2007

MONTREAL, CANADA | Posted on May 15th, 2007

Silk Displays, a pioneer in the development of flexible plastics with embedded intelligence for liquid crystal displays and other applications, will give two presentations at NSTI Nanotech 2007, May 20 to 24. Nanotech is organized by the Nano Science and Technology Institute.

Located this year at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California, Nanotech is an annual gathering of leading scientists, researchers and business people to share developments and innovations in the emerging science of nanotechnology. It is the largest international nanotechnology conference and trade show in the world, with over 4000 attendees expected at the 2007 edition.

Company president and CEO Dr. Richard A. Simon, who will be presenting as part of the Nanotech Ventures & Partnering: Materials 1 stream, remarked: "Silk Displays is excited to be part of such a distinguished group of researchers and scientists. Not only is Nanotech the largest international nanotechnology conference, it's also a unique opportunity in that it brings together players from a wide range of fields of science, technology and business. It's a venue where important partnerships are formed and where innovations can quickly gather momentum."

Dr. Mark Andrews, Silk Displays' chief technology officer, will present a paper entitled, "Functional Plastic Liquid Crystal Displays from II-VI Semiconductor Nanocomposite Thin Film Transistors on Polymers."

This collaborative effort between McGill University and Silk Displays describes an innovative process for making smart plastic substrates suitable for liquid crystal displays, allowing the substrate to retain "shape memory" and giving it the capacity to adapt to various semiconductor-like fabrication steps.

Before joining Silk Displays, Dr. Andrews was co-founder/CTO of Lumenon Innovative Lightwave Technology (NASDAQ), a photonics company using polymers in leading-edge applications. He was also a Principal Investigator in the Materials Research Division at Bell Laboratories and has held positions at McGill University's Department of Chemistry since 1990.
