The Complex World of ITO Replacement
Nov 25, 2015
As IDTechEx Research has covered extensively before, there are many alternatives to ITO on the market that have traction in different segments, albeit niche areas for now. However, the situation is more complex than one film layer providing a drop in replacement for an ITO layer, and in this article we explore some of those issues, based on interviews with several organizations using alternatives. The incumbent technology for touch panels is ITO…

A step forward for graphene walkers
Nov 18, 2015 China
Scientists in China have developed a graphene-based paper which can fold itself into predesigned shapes when exposed to light or gentle heat. The material, which is created from graphene oxide, can also 'walk' across a table and turn a corner. Potential applications of the material include sensors, artificial muscles and robotics.
