About us

Printed Electronics Technologies Limited Liability Company (PRINTELTECH LLC) was founded in 2015 with the participation of the NP "Joint Technology Transfer Center of RAS and RUSNANO" and the Institute of Synthetic Polymer Materials, Russian Academy of Sciences (ISPM RAN). Since May 2015 PrintElTech has become a resident of the "Skolkovo" Innovation Center (cluster of Nuclear Technology).

Our company is focused on a research in a field of gas sensors based on organic field-effect transistors (OFETs). The technology allows high sensitivities (up to ppb concentrations) combined with low power consumption, low cost and enabled mobile applications. Such sensitivity is an outcome of two factors. The first is a utilization of very thin semiconductor film (up to several nanometers). The electrical properties of such films are strongly affected by the presence of analyte molecules. The second factor is a analyte-specific receptor layer, which improves a selectivity. The collected electrical response can be further processed by conventional IC's.
