Lux Semiconductors, an alumni spinoff of SUNY Poly, Partners with Alma Mater on Optimized Flexible Electronics
Lux Semiconductors, an alumni company of SUNY Poly, has partnered with its alma mater and is working with Dr. Harry Efstathiadis’ lab, which has received funding from Lux Semiconductors, in pursuit of optimizing its thin-film crystalline silicon platform for flexible electronics.
SUNY Poly provides access to world-class semiconductor equipment and talent for the characterization of thin-film layers, a critical component of Lux’s flexible wafer-alternative. Ultra thin films of semiconductor material can be deposited in large sheets, at nanoscale thicknesses, which can result in lower cost, flexible, and high performing material.
Lux is developing its novel platform for peel-and-stick wireless sensors, intended for smart buildings, industrial automation, and aerospace applications.
This latest grant follows previous funding from the National Science Foundation, which combined, has provided $43,000 to the research collaboration.
