Smoltek wins the ‘Best of Session Paper’ at virtual IMAPS 2020

Smoltek attend­ed the vir­tu­al IMAPS 2020 sym­po­sium in Octo­ber last year. In this vir­tu­al for­mat of the 53rd Inter­na­tion­al Micro­elec­tron­ics Assem­bly and Pack­ag­ing Soci­ety sym­po­sium our tech­ni­cal paper was select­ed ‘Best of Ses­sion Paper’.

The IMAPS 2020 all vir­tu­al sym­po­sium con­sist­ed of over 75 tech­ni­cal pre­sen­ta­tions across 5 tracks and 17 ses­sion cat­e­gories. The pre­sen­ta­tions was avail­able for on-demand view­ing com­ple­ment­ed by a live Q&A session.

At the sym­po­sium R&D engi­neer Vic­tor Marknäs pre­sent­ed the Smoltek paper: “Elec­tri­cal per­for­mance and robust­ness of ultra thin high-den­si­ty car­bon nano fiber capac­i­tors on sil­i­con, alu­mi­na and glass sub­strate materials”.

The tech­ni­cal com­mit­tee has select­ed the Smoltek paper (by Vic­tor Marknäs, Vin­cent Des­maris, Amin Saleem, Maria Bylund, Rickard Ander­s­son, Elisa Pas­salac­qua and Shafiq Kabir) to be ‘Best of Ses­sion Paper’.
