Scientists from Harvard University's Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and the Air Force Research Laboratory have joined forces to create a new method for the digital design and printing of flexible electronics.
GraphExeter —a material made from graphene—can be used to improve the effectiveness of large, flexible displays.
Researchers at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) have developed a component that could make flexible OLEDs (organic light-emitting diode) displays actually work—a transparent electrode made from graphene.
A team of University of Wisconsin—Madison engineers has created the world’s fastest stretchable, wearable integrated circuits. Stretchy electrical interconnects are already used in wearable electronics, but the... Read More...
An international team of researchers developed energy-storing devices that could be used to make transparent, flexible electronics. They used a new technique to fabricate supercapacitors made of carbon nanotube films.
A ubiquitous office and school supply has just gotten a technical upgrade. A team of researchers from the University of Washington, Disney Research and Carnegie Mellon University have given paper sensing abilities so that just like modern devices, items made from paper can respond to swipes and taps and connect to the digital world.
A team of electrical engineering researchers placed a 2D semiconductor (MoS2) on top of an optical nanocavity. The structure improved the material’s absorption of light, so it could absorb 70 percent of a laser that was projected onto it. This approach could lead to more efficient and flexible electronics.
Engineers at the University of Wisconson—Madison have found an inexpensive, easy way to make flexible transistors. The manufacturing method can easily be repeated and scaled up, but the most exciting developmen... Read More...
