Bruce Kahn is the Director of Business Development for the AMPrint Center at RIT, a NY state Center for Advanced Technology (CAT) for Additive Manufacturing and Multifunctional Printing. He has been involved in functional printing and printed electronics since 2002. He is a frequent lecturer and author, and regularly teaches workshops in the US and abroad. In 2014, he received the Flexi award for technology leadership in education from the FlexTech Alliance.
Dr. Kahn has directed research programs on RF energy harvesting using printed metamaterials, rapid automated metrology of printed features, and the influence of scale up and printing process parameters on printed devices using commercial scale flexographic and gravure printing. His work has produced (both small and production scale) RF energy harvesters, transparent conductive films, multilayer devices, chemical sensors, and antennas for Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags.
Dr. Kahn has a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Nebraska, and a S. B. in Chemistry with a minor in Economics from the University of Chicago. He is the author of over 100 publications and presentations, including the books High-Throughput Fabrication of Flexible Electronics (Wiley-VCH 2017), Developments in Printable Organic Transistors, (Intertech-Pira, 2005), Printed and Thin Film Photovoltaics and Batteries (IDTechEx, 2007-2012, 6 Editions), and Displays and Lighting: OLED, e-paper, electroluminescent and beyond (IDTechEx, 2008).
