Spray on memory could enable bendable digital storageUSB flash drives are already common accessories in offices and college campuses. But thanks to the rise in printable electronics, digital storage devices like these may soon be everywhere - including on our groceries, pill bottles and even clothing.
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.
Liquid metal nano printing set to revolutionise electronicsA new technique using liquid metals to create integrated circuits that are just atoms thick could lead to the next big advance for electronics.
Conductive inks in 2017: The next big thingsIn this article, we will briefly outline the progress in multiple emerging sectors whilst also identifying the latest trendy nascent application areas. The conductive ink industry is still...
Ground-breaking production method could accelerate worldwide ‘graphene revolution’An innovative new cheap and simple mass production technique, developed by the University of Exeter, is set to open up the global potential of the ‘wonder’ material graphene.
Fujitsu Develops World's First Gas Sensor to Apply a New Principle for Graphene UseFujitsu Laboratories Ltd. today announced the world's first successful development of an exquisitely sensitive gas sensor based on a new principle that takes advantage of graphene, a material in which carbon atoms are arranged in a sheet one atom thick.
Stanford engineers create prototype chip just three atoms thickEver since scientists discovered that atomically thin materials could have useful electronic properties, engineers have been seeking ways to mass-produce so-called single-layer chips. A new technique shows how it might be done.
