2D-INK ... the movie

  • 2018 Nov 11

2D-INK (http://www.2d-ink.eu) is a European project targeted at developing inks of novel 2D semiconducting materials for low-cost large-area fabrication processes on insulating substrates through a new methodology, which will exceed the properties of state-of-the-art graphene- and graphene oxide based inks. Watch the movie.
