Clear Jet – Wait and see – Printed Electronics

Many companies produce transparent conductive films (for displays, touch screens, and solar panels) using etching, but Clear Jet can directly pattern silver nanoparticle inks using the “coffee-ring” effect – the nanoparticles go to the outside of inkjet droplets, forming a series of interlocking rings. While it faces many hurdles in scaling its process, it has the potential to lower costs long term.

Leading emerging technology research firm Lux Research profiled 370 companies across 15 different emerging technology domains in the third quarter of 2012 as part of its ongoing intelligence services. Drawing on the domain expertise of its analysts, Lux Research uses primary research to provide detailed information and critical analysis of firms developing emerging technologies that are poised to impact global megatrends like energy and infrastructure, health and wellness, and materials revolutions.

Each quarter the Lux Research team of analysts identifies the 10 most compelling companies profiled across all its coverage areas. Each firm gets a “Lux Take” that ranges from “Strong Caution” to “Strong Positive,” to provide a bottom-line assessment of its prospects, with a “Wait and see” rating for companies that still face too much uncertainty for a definitive call.
