Ink-jet printable and biocompatible layered electronicsPrinted electronics can lead to both low-cost and flexible devices. Flexible electronics is of particular interest for wearable systems, such as health and fitness trackers, while the relative low-costs of printing are attractive for functional packaging for consumer products. Graphene and related layered materials (GRMs) are ideal for printed electronics because they can be readily solution processed into inks that have excellent electronic properties.
Stretchable electronics: no longer a solution looking for a problemThe electronic industry is in the midst of a major paradigm shift: novel form factors are emerging, ranging from the introduction of limited stretchability, through to ultra-elastic and conformable electronics. This transfiguration has been in the making for more than a decade now, but it is only now that it is beginning to make a substantial commercial impact.
Better adhesives allow more accurate, compact medical equipmentPatient monitoring, display and testing equipment is becoming more accurate, versatile, compact and portable allowing for improved bedside treatment.
Consistent colour, long lifetime and high reliability for LEDsManaging temperatures using appropriate electronics packaging materials is essential to ensure the reliability of high-power LED applications.
