The Zero defect manufacturing workshop was held on 24 October in Brussels and brought together key stakeholders to shape the future landscape of European manufacturing.

During this workshop, Prof. S.Logothetidis Director of Nanotechnology Lab LTFN - AUTh, gave a presentation as the coordinator of the EU project Smartline.


LTFN, together with OET, and HOPE-A participated in the Workshop on “Smart Bioelectronic and Wearable Systems” that took place on 22-23 October in Brussels. This two - day EC workshop presented topics covering smart systems across Key Digital technologies. Great emphasis was given on bio-electronics, bio-photonics, and flexible and wearable electronics. This event also highlighted the role of Bioelectronics and Flexible & Wearable Electronics in the context of the Digital R&I Agenda, such as Edge Computing, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, and Cybersecurity.
Furthermore, in the properly formed exhibition area, running and completed EU-funded projects had the chance to present their results via demonstrators and visuals. Dr. Argiris Laskarakis, LTFN presented among others the results and actions of Smartline Project.


AUTh - Nanotechnology Lab LTFN and OE-Technologies participated in the IDTechEx Show 2019, held on April 10-11, at Berlin, Germany. Dr. Argiris Laskarakis (AUTh) gave an interesting invited talk about "Enabling Artificial Intelligence in Nano-manufacturing of Printed Electronics by In-Line Metrology and Control". We would like to thank all of you that visited us!


Smartline Project together with NANOTEXNOLOGY Organizing Committee organizes the Workshop on In-line & Real-time Metrology and Quality Control for Nano-Manufacturing, during NANOTEXNOLOGY 2019. The objective of the Workshop is the reveal the huge potentiality of in-line and real-time metrology methods (tools, measurement/analysis methodologies, protocols, integration concepts) to revolutionize the digital manufacturing of advanced materials, devices, components, processes and products based on Organic & Printed Electronics.

The Workshop topics include:

  • In-line/In-situ/Real-Time characterization tools and methodologies
  • Non-destructive metrology methods and tools
  • Novel Instruments and Improvements
  • Optical, Electrical, Structural, Visual characterization
  • Characterization protocols and standards
  • Modeling and analysis approaches
  • Integration concepts in pilot and production lines
  • Defect inspection from nano- to macro-
  • Thin film monitoring and optimization of processes
  • Feedback, Quality Control and Automation
  • In-line Process in Roll-to-Roll, Vacuum and Gas Transport
  • Manufacturing & Applications

AUTh has participated at the 7th Korea-EU NanoWorkshop that took place at Seoul, S. Korea at 12 November 2018. Dr. A. Laskarakis (AUTh) presented an invited talk with title: Intelligent In-line Optical Metrology for the optimization of manufacturing of Flexible Organic Electronic Devices. With this presentation, he described the AUTh activities in the manufacturing of OEs and he presented the activities related to the development of in-line metrology tools for the optimization of OE device fabrication. Also, he discussed with representatives from KOPEA (Korean Association for Organic Electronics) for establishment of collaborations (also within the HOPE-A with which there is a singed Momerandum of Understanding-MoU).
Finally, it was discussed a roadmap for collaboration in relevant activities on flexible OEs with the Korean stakeholders and to network with EU entities with expertise in OEs.

AUTh has participated at the IDTEchEx Printed Electronics USA 2018. Prof. S. Logothetidis r. A. Laskarakis presented an oral presentation for the innovations related to SmartLine regarding the the robust, non-destructive, ultra-fast and in-line Precision Metrology (optical, electrical, structural, etc) and the large experimentation data analytics for the quality control of large area printable & flexible & printable OE devices and the ultra-fast digital feedback to the pilot and production lines for the closed loop manufacturing of OE devices with tailored performance and high production yield.

Prof. S. Logothetidis had several discussions with representatives from industrial communities from USA, Canada, Europe and Asia and exchanged views and prospects about the implementation of in-line metrology and control tools for the digital nanomanufacturing of advanced products based on Organic Electronics. These discussions will benefit the SmartLine project since they create new links for the industrial adoption of the project results to different materials for manufacturing of mass-market products. Also, the innovations of the project were demonstrated by an exhibition booth at this event.
