Research

PERC Research Graphic

The core mission of PERC is to develop new devices and subsystems that provide electromagnetic, electronic and photonic functionality using Additive Manufacturing and Printed Electronics approaches. Building strategic partnerships between the University, Industry and Government, research is directed at solving today's challenges with innovative, flexible and conformal solutions.

Projects employ an array of additive technologies and novel approaches to print active and passive devices on nonstandard 2D and 3D materials.
