WebFOCUS Report
Project description
Printed electronics can offer new applications in radiation sensing and imaging (for example X-ray, UV radiation), where the flexibility, low-cost and large-area of the detectors can be of benefit and expand the opportunities of such detectors in non-destructive testing (NDT) and inline process control. The project develops the technology for the fabrication of such flexible X-ray detectors. The focus of the project is in materials and inks for the utilization of novel high-resolution printing technique and it aims to optimize the sensitivity of radiation detector elements using various approaches. The project is a collaboration between VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Japan.
