FlexEnable joins Graphene Flagship

Flexible electronics developer FlexEnable is joining the Graphene Flagship and says its expertise in industrialising flexible electronics will help to harness the potential of graphene and other 2D materials.

Working within the Flexible Electronics Work Package, FlexEnable will contribute to the development of a roadmap for graphene with partners covering the value chain from materials production to component fabrication and systems integration.

Indro Mukerjee, FlexEnable's chairman, said: "Our involvement will enable the accelerated integration of this game changing material in a new generation of ultra flexible end user applications with innovative form factors."

The company says its Cambridge fab will play a strategic role in showcasing graphene's performance over surfaces of all sizes, including large areas, as well as in the development of advanced product concepts.

Last year, FlexEnable demonstrated a flexible display based on a transparent graphene conductor, which was integrated into its flexible transistor array. It continues to develop new use cases for graphene in flexible electronics, including highly conductive interconnect lines and barrier films.
