Smart paper, i.e. paper with electronic components embedded on wood-based paper substrates, is reviewed. Existing technologies are thoroughly evaluated (printing, electronics, mechanical and chemical), as well as the role these play in embedding printed electronics on paper substrates.
Printed electronics have seen explosive growth due to the emergence of e-readers, with more than 20 e-readers currently available in the marketplace. This highly successful medium is expected to transform many industries, such as advertising, promotion, signage, healthcare, toys, games and apparel, and also has the potential to transform the paper industry.
Smart Paper informs readers of the present state of the smart paper industry and the possibilities and opportunities it has for the future.
