EIKOS CEO JOE PICHE TO ADDRESS WORLD NANO-ECONOMIC CONGRESS

IN SINGAPORE ON NANOTECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS FOR DISPLAYS

FRANKLIN, MA, Oct. 8, 2004 – Eikos Inc., a developer and licensor of highly transparent carbon nanotube (CNT) inks for conductive coatings and circuits, today announced that CEO Joe Piche will address the prestigious World Nano-Economic Congress in Singapore on October 13.

 

Piche will discuss the various nanotechnology solutions being applied to displays and their stages of development.

 

“The Conference in Singapore is an ideal forum for us to detail how nanotech, and specifically our InvisiconTM technology, will offer cost- efficient manufacturing alternatives to materials now used in display technology,” Piche explains.  “I look forward to this forum to expand our network of partnerships with Asian companies.”  Eikos currently has agreements with Itochu and Takiron to develop specific applications and is planning to establish manufacturing facilities in Asia.

 

Eikos Inc. is a developer and licensor of highly transparent carbon nanotube (CNT) inks for conductive coatings and circuits for use in flat panel displays, OLED lighting, solar cells, smart windows and other established markets.   The company is scheduled to begin production of its transparent, conductive CNT coatings by year-end.

 

Eikos’ patented InvisiconTM   transparent conductors (‘nanowires’) will enable high volume, low cost production of a thinner, more flexible and more durable conductive coating technology that will displace Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) as the industry standard. 

 

Recently, Eikos Invisicon technology achieved better contrast and brighter display characteristics as compared to Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) coated materials in preliminary testing for one of its partners.
