In the TUCscicast Dr. Georg Schmidt responds the questions about the latest developments of T-PAPER technology, advantages of the printed electronics today as well as the ideas for the future applications on the basis of printed paper lodspeakers. You will find the TUCscicast in every podcast app!
T-PAPER team published their new scientific paper on „Paper-Embedded Roll-to-Roll Mass Printed Piezoelectric Transducers“ in Advanced Materials. Georg C. Schmidt and co-authors could realize an innovative concept for large-area piezoelectric devices on paper made by means of cost efficient roll-to-roll mass printing. Also post printing technologies including inline poling were realized at the Institute for Print and Media Technology.
TU Chemnitz presented in the press release a 360° surround-sound installation made with a 387 cm long paper web consisting of 56 piezoelectric speakers. The paper loudspeaker web including printed wiring weighs only about 150 gramm.
