INFlex Labs offers a wide range of nanoparticle inks for printed and flexible hybrid electronics. We are the first to market with a line of multijet inks compatible with inkjet, aerosol jet, and plasma jet printing. Our wide range of metallic (Pt, Au, Ni, etc.), semiconducting (MoS2, WS2, CNTs, and ZnO), insulating (hBN, Al2O3, TiO2) inks have been developed in collaboration with university and government researchers including the Department of Energy and NASA. We also offer characterization and engineering services for custom ink and sensors development.
Dr. David Estrada
Dr. David Estrada founded the Integrated Nanomaterials Laboratory in 2013, which later became the Advanced Nanomaterials and Manufacturing Laboratory in partnership with Dr. Harish Subbaraman in 2016. He is currently the Associate Director for the Center for Advanced Energy Studies (CAES). David served in the United States Navy as an Electronics Warfare Technician/ Cryptologic Technician – Technical. He achieved the rank of Petty Officer First Class in 2003 before receiving an honorable discharge and returning to Idaho to pursue his undergraduate education at Boise State University (BSU) where he was a Ronald E. McNair scholar. After completing his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from BSU in May of 2007, he began graduate studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) under the direction of Professor Eric Pop. David received his Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from UIUC in 2009, and his Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical Engineering at UIUC in 2013. David then joined Professor Rashid Bashir’s Laboratory of Integrated Bio Medical Micro/Nanotechnology Applications as a Visiting Postdoctoral Researcher before moving to the Materials Science and Engineering Department at Boise State University. David is a member of the Engineering Honor Society – Tau Beta Pi, and numerous professional societies. David is the recipient of the NSF, NDSEG, SURGE, and Micron Graduate Fellowships. He also is the recipient of the NSF CAREER Award, the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers Innovator of the Year Award, the National TRIO Achievers Award, the International Association of Advanced Materials Medal, and The Idaho Business Review’s Accomplished Under 40 Award. His research interests are in the areas of emergent semiconductor nanomaterials and bionanotechnology.
Dr. Harish Subbaraman
Dr. Harish Subbaraman joined the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Boise State University in the Fall of 2016. Prior to that, he was a senior research scientist at Omega Optics in Austin, TX, where he worked on printed and flexible photonics and electronics; and silicon and polymer based optical interconnects. He completed his B.E. in Electronics and Communication from Chaitanya Bharathi Institute Of Technology in India. He earned his M.S. in 2006 and his Ph.D. in 2009, both in Electrical Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin. Dr. Subbaraman’s current research areas include ink-jet printing and silicon nanomembrane based flexible electronic and photonic devices; fiber-optic sensors; optical true-time-delay; phased array antennas; RF photonics; polymer photonics; and slow-light photonic crystal waveguides. He has served as a PI and Co-PI on several federal and state grants. Dr. Subbaraman has 5 issued and pending patents and has over 130 publications in refereed journals and conferences. He is a member of SPIE, and OSA. He is a senior member of IEEE.
