JERUSALEM-Yissum Research Development Company Ltd., the technology transfer company of the Jerusalem Hebrew University and Vaxan Steel Co., Ltd., the world’s leading provider of innovative print, signed by the Korean company in the field of licensing and research development of silver nanoparticles and silver coated copper nanoparticles-leading inks. These inks can be used in a wide variety of printing techniques, including inkjet printing. As the senior was invented by Professor Shlomo Magdassi inks, Dr. Alexander Kamyshny and the Michael Grouchko-Chemistry Institute of the Hebrew University.
The wording of the agreement, the license granted to Vaxan Yissum commercialised exclusively in Asia, the technology, with the exception of Israel and the former Soviet Union countries and receive in return for fees and commissions research on future sales.
One of the most exciting fields in the vicinity of the present and the future is Printed Electronics – the ability to print circuits almost any surface, including paper, plastic, silicon and ceramics. Printable electronics used or kept in several applications, such as display and thin film photovoltaics, radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, OLED lighting, and sensors for use.
The electronics industry is traditionally responsible for printing, lithography and screen printing. However, these methods are typically time consuming and expensive. Thus, in recent years in the printing industry in the evolution towards digital electronics, printing, inkjet printing as one of the most appealing with the technology. This printing technology ink Jetted containing metallic nanoparticles micron-size of the droplets kuristimesta substrate, which can be plastic, glass or silicon wafer onto the page.
Silver nanoparticles are particularly appealing inkjet printing, because silver has to metals, on the one hand, and unlike other metals, conductivity oxidation damage to the final movie. For this reason, the silver was used extensively by leading printing inks and the first material. Copper, on the other hand, is much cheaper than silver (approximately 1/100 Silver cost), but it is easily accessible by air, becoming so oxidizes-senior. Prof. Magdassi and his colleagues invented copper nanoparticles, which are silver, thin layer to produce Cheap, senior, air-stable particles, which can be easily used for a variety of applications from leading ink.
“We are proud of the Hebrew University, has had the opportunity to participate in this cooperation and hope to strengthen our ties with the Republic of Korea (DPRK) industry in the future,” said Yaacov Michlin, CEO, Yissum. “We are confident that the new partners to help us as a result of the introduction of this invention to market.”
Mr. Duek Chi Lee, VAXAN CEO, said, “the nanotechnology applications, which we have licensed Yissum, IT applied to Semiconductors, LED and OLED industry. We are certain of this technological innovation for the future of the international success of B2B e-markets. Once again I want to thank Yissum, Prof. Magdassi and GlobalTech Korea that helped the cooperation between Korea and Israel. “
Mr. Hyunsung Kim GlobalTech Korea, said, “we are very excited by this agreement, which marks the first commercial collaboration between the University and the Korean company in Israel. GlobalTech Korea Tel Aviv Office will continue to do our best to inform you in advance for a future r & d cooperation between the two countries. “
