Top academicians and renowned experts gather to discuss cooperation and development of flexible electronics industry
The 2022 China Flexible Electronics Industry Development Conference invited Huang Wei, member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, foreign member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, professor and doctoral supervisor of Northwestern Polytechnic University, Liu Yunqi, member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, member of the Academy of Sciences for Developing Countries and professor of the Department of Materials Science of Fudan University, Li Jinghong, member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, professor and doctoral supervisor of the Department of Chemistry of Tsinghua University, Peng Xiaojun, Dean, Professor and Doctoral Supervisor of the School of Chemical Engineering, Dalian University of Technology, and Zhu Huilong, Member of the International Eurasian Academy of Sciences and Researcher of the Institute of Microelectronics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, five top domestic academicians attended the event.
Academician Zhu Huilong delivered a keynote report on "New Advances in Vertical Nanotransistor Manufacturing Technology". With the advantages of high speed, high reliability and long service life, vertical nanotransistors play an irreplaceable role in artificial intelligence, automotive electronics and industry. Academician Zhu Huilong introduced the new breakthroughs made by the team's scientific research achievements from various aspects, such as process methods, device structures, logic and storage prototype devices.
The conference also opened an innovative "China-Japan-Korea Flexible Electronics Pioneer Dialogue", inviting Huang Weibang, Deputy General Manager of Chengdu Institute of Flexible Electronics, Park Wonsook, Chairman of China-Korea Future Innovation Accelerator, and Nakajima Koumo, General Manager of Idemitsu Electronic Materials (China) Co. The theme of the event was "Global Market Development Pattern of Flexible Electronics Industry".
Talking about why he chose to locate in Chengdu Hi-tech Zone, Mitsuo Nakajima, General Manager of Idemitsu Electronic Materials (China) Co., Ltd. appreciated: "Chengdu has a relatively complete industrial cluster, excellent technology in the use and mass production of new materials, a huge consumer market and a basis for R&D cooperation, and a great potential for developing new high-performance materials in particular. "
At the conference site, Lenovo Group Vice President Wang Zhepeng, combined with the results of Lenovo's research and development of flexible electronics technology, brought a number of the world's first flexible electronic products, in Wang Zhepeng's view, flexible technology is a future trend, and the future of Lenovo to achieve is to truly make flexible technology like paper.
This year's conference also launched the flexible electronics industry development alliance led by the compilation, Huang Wei academician link release of the "2022 flexible electronics industry white paper".
It is reported that this is also China's first white paper on the whole industrial field of flexible electronics. The white paper mentions: flexible electronics is a disruptive science and technology formed on the basis of a high degree of cross-fertilisation of disciplines, flexible electronics and other core technologies of the smart era are accelerating cross-industry and cross-discipline integration and innovation, and should become a new engine to empower the future development of the regional economy.
"At present, China's flexible electronics industry has achieved from running with, and running to leading the transformation, in the international emergence." To seize the current new opportunities for the development of flexible electronics industry, Huang Wei academician proposed 3 initiatives: to further focus on industrial layout, to create flexible electronics "China Carbon Valley" industrial base; focus on core technology research, strengthen the top-level design of flexible electronics innovation development; strengthen talent training and discipline construction, fully exploit the flexible electronics talent Innovation potential.
Shaping new development momentum and new advantages to build a world-class "Soft Valley" brand
The report of the 20th Party Congress emphasises the need to accelerate the implementation of the innovation-driven development strategy.
The reporter learned that in recent years, Chengdu High-tech Zone around flexible electronics, and constantly shaping the development of new momentum and new advantages, after years of development precipitation, formed by the upstream raw materials and components, midstream display panels and modules, downstream display applications composed of innovative industrial clusters, flexible display industry city ranked first in the country.
Up to now, Chengdu Hi-tech Zone has built BOE's first domestic fully flexible AMOLED production line, the world's third and the first domestic OLED light-emitting material manufacturing base, the first G11 generation mask version product production line of Luwei Optoelectronics, etc. At the same time, around BOE, Tianma and other new display chain main enterprises, successfully build the whole industry chain ecology, attracting LG Chemical, China Optoelectronics, China King Yuan Sheng, Hua Xing Yuan Chuang, Ye Cheng, TCL, OPPO and a large number of upstream and downstream enterprises. In addition, in the area of emerging display technologies, it has landed leading enterprises in the micro-LED segment such as Chenxian Optoelectronics and Chuangxian Optoelectronics, and formed a laser display industry cluster with Polaris and Fester as the main players.
In addition, the Chengdu High-tech Zone is actively relying on industrial investment funds to vigorously promote the deep integration of capital and industrial chains. A total of 300 billion yuan of industrial funds will be launched in five years from 2022, and industrial development "partners" will be widely recruited.
The relevant person in charge of Chengdu High-tech Zone said that flexible electronics as a highly cross-fertilized disruptive science and technology, is a key core technology breakthrough, is an important part of the country to achieve a high level of scientific and technological self-sufficiency, but also the Chengdu High-tech Zone focus on the development of a "new field of new track".
"The next step, Chengdu High-tech Zone will closely follow the industry chain and value chain, continue to build the most extensive government, industry, academia and research exchange platform, fully gather the technology, projects, talent and other resources in the flexible electronics industry chain, accelerate the industry 'build circle and strong chain', shape the development of new momentum and new advantages, to create a world-class 'flex valley' brand." The person in charge said.
