Self-Healing Devices Gain or Regain Function After Being Cut

Self-Healing Devices Gain or Regain Function After Being Cut

A "smart" polymer cast that automatically seals itself around a broken arm, a membrane that can sense where it has been cut, and pneumatic actuators that can be cut and reconfigured into different shapes are some possible applications for a new self-healing material.

Graphene for Future Healthcare Applications

Graphene for Future Healthcare Applications

Graphene is hailed as the first two-dimensional material and was first isolated in 2004. Since then, initiatives like the EU-funded Graphene Flagship project have enabled the discovery of thousands of other two-dimensional and layered materials. Here, Kari Hjelt, the Graphene Flagship Head of Innovation, explains the potential of these materials in healthcare applications.

Why amorphous silicon, DSSC and CdTe photovoltaics are dying

Why amorphous silicon, DSSC and CdTe photovoltaics are dying

Amorphous silicon appears in solar watches and a few similar applications but it has hydrogen in the lattice limiting life, and efficiency improvement is virtually over.

Breakthrough in Electronics 3D Printing

Utilizing a newly developed dielectric polymer ink and conductive ink from Nano Dimension, HENSOLDT succeeded in assembling the world-wide first 10-layer printed circuit board which carries high-performance electronic structures soldered to both outer sides. Until now, 3D printed boards could not bear the soldering process necessary for two sided population of components.

Riddled With Holes: Making Flexible Thin-Film Electronics More Durable

Riddled With Holes: Making Flexible Thin-Film Electronics More Durable

The prospect of the widespread commercialization and application of flexible electronics has kept researchers worldwide searching for ingenious ways to enhance their performance and durability. From wearable smart devices to solar cells and health sensors, flexible electronics holds much promise in many engineering fields. Unfortunately, flexible devices are usually as fragile as they look; mechanical deformations, such as bending, can induce the formation and propagation of microscopic cracks that ultimately cause devices to fail.

How Flexible Integrated Circuits Unlock Their Potential

How Flexible Integrated Circuits Unlock Their Potential

Flexible hybrid electronic (FHE) promises to combine the functionality of conventional rigid electronics with the flexibility of printed electronics. A prototypical FHE circuit, in which an integrated circuit is combined with multiple other elements, includes (for example) printed sensors, an antenna, a thin film battery and even thin film PV. Not all components need to be included, or even printed, for a circuit to count as FHE, but it must include as a minimum both printed and placed functionality.

Electrics and Electronics Becomes User-Dedicated Smart Material

An important new trend is buying electrics and electronics you customise to function not just shape. See the new IDTechEx report, "Complete Electronics as Smart Material, User-Customized 2020-2040". Builders, textile manufacturers, those doing home improvement and others are starting to buy electrically-smart materials direct from materials companies, bypassing the electronics industry.

Upcoming Webinar - Bioplastics: The Route to a Sustainable Future?

Bioplastics, polymers derived from biological feedstocks, are a potential solution to the environmental problems caused by plastic - they are made from renewable resources and often biodegrade. Despite this, bioplastics have historically struggled to compete with fossil-based plastics, which are often far cheaper. But, are things beginning to change?
