2D fab enters collaboration to improve accuracy in radiation measurement during cancer treatment. Together with Scandidos, Akzo Nobel and Acreo we will develop a new technology to manufacture ACA utilizing graphene.
Current electronic components are often mounted with ACA (Anisotropic Conductive Adhesives). Metals are included to get electrical conductivity in the adhesive, but that causes problems in many applications. For example, Scandidos has products that measure radiation during cancer treatments. The metals in the adhesives interact with the radiation, which makes the measurements less accurate. 2D fab and Scandidos are now – together with Akzo Nobel and Acreo – developing metal free ACA. Hopes are that graphene, with its great conductive properties, will replace the metals in current ACA.
