EIKOS, INC. NAMES DISPLAYS EXPERT JORMA PELTOLA
AS PROGRAM MANAGER
FRANKLIN, MA, February 15, 2006 -- Eikos, Inc., a developer and manufacturer of carbon nanotube (CNT) inks for highly conductive transparent coatings and circuits, has appointed Jorma Peltola as program manager.
In his new position, Jorma will direct research and development to enhance CNT layer performance in photovoltaic cells.
Jorma has nearly two decades of experience in research, development and manufacturing of opto-electronic materials for high reliability applications including flat panels.
Prior to joining Eikos, Jorma was a consultant for several of the world's leading display manufacturers where he developed flat panel display process technologies for mobile electronic applications.
From 1992 to 2003, Jorma worked as a senior process engineer at Dupont Displays, Inc. (formerly known as Uniax Corporation), specializing in research, development, and commercialization of Organic Light Emitting Displays (OLED). There, he managed back-end process technology developments identifying key materials for use in rigid and flexible OLED assemblies.
Jorma began his career at Epoxy Technology, Inc., as a product development engineer from 1987 to 1992, developing electrically and thermally conducting high performance, adhesives, pastes and coatings.
an M.S. in Plastics Engineering from the
Inc. is a developer and manufacturer of highly transparent carbon nanotube inks
for conductive coatings and circuits for use in solar cells, flat panel
displays, OLED lighting, smart windows and other established markets. Eikos’ patented Invisicon® 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), Zinc Oxide, PEDOT/PSS, and other transparent conductors. A privately held company headquartered in
Franklin Massachusetts, Eikos has a number of licenses and development
contracts with major global companies,
