Screen-Printed, Paper-Thin Batteries to Arrive by 2010

(October 2009) posted on Mon Sep 21, 2009

Suitable for short-term applications


Chemnitz, Germany-based Fraunhofer Research Institution for Electronic Nano Systems, scientists from the University of Technology, and Menippos GmbH have come up with small, thin batteries that are designed for mass-production by 2010 using conventional screen-printing presses. The next step is to commercialize these printable batteries that pattern organic semiconductors on thin, flexible substrates for smart credit cards with battery-powered displays that show balances and other account information.

Present designs use zinc anodes and manganese cathodes reacting with one another to produce electricity. Eventually, these materials dissipate over the lifetime of the battery. Applications are suitable for short-term applications such as greeting cards with built-in music players.

Printable batteries for smart cards would weigh less than 1 g and measure less than 1 mm thick. They would be screen printed, and a rubber lip would press the organic semiconductor material through a screen onto the flexible substrate. Using lithographic techniques, templates would pattern one layer upon the next, each the width of a human hair. The battery is designed to produce 1.5 v/cell and, unlike conventional batteries that use heavy metals, would be produced without hazardous chemicals.

The price point for these tiny batteries falls at 10 cents each. Later this year, Fraunhofer researchers predict the first commercial designs will begin beta testing. For more information, visit www.fraunhofer.de.

The following time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I imply, I do know it was my choice to learn, but I truly thought youd have one thing attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you possibly can fix when you werent too busy on the lookout for attention.
