Graphene Commercialization & Applications 2013 Announces $200 Discount for Early Registration, Speakers from Nokia Research & Samsung Techwin

Flexible electronics are seen as one of graphene’s most revolutionary applications, with many companies undertaking huge research projects to bring products to market.

To realize this game changing use, researchers and industry are now scrutinizing graphene’s role as a replacement for expensive and diminishing indium tin oxide, revealing the time frame for production scale-up, and detailing the real sizes of sheets available to discover commercially viable graphene based devices.

Graphene Commercialization and Applications 2013, which will be held in San Mateo, California, December 10-11 2013, is pleased to announce Jani Kivioja, Research Leader, Nokia Research Center, as the latest industry leader to join the stellar faculty. Dr Kivioja will address application development as well as detailing the short term direction Nokia sees for graphene in flexible electronics, being joined by Seungmin Cho, Principal Research Engineer at Samsung Techwin.

This session underlines the application focus of the summit, a vital lens for establishing commercial viability.

Other applications to be evaluated include joint sessions focusing on:

  • Batteries - The Extent To Which Graphene Can Be Utilized To Improve Energy Density In Batteries And The Purity Requirements For Use – Is This Application Economically Scalable? - Xin Zhao, Materials Scientist, Jefferson Labs
