Nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Apr 27, 2017 United States
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers have synthesized thin carbon nanotube textiles, that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
In mold electronics: the next frontier for transparent conductive film

In mold electronics: the next frontier for transparent conductive film

Apr 26, 2017 Worldwide
In Mold Electronics is making a commercial comeback. The behind-the-scenes interest in IME remains robust. The first wave of products are close to market launch, the value networks are being enhanced, volume manufacturers are more engaged than ever, and the material set is transitioning beyond conductive inks to include transparent conductive films, sensors, actuators, and so on. Overall, we expect 2017/18 to the years when IME applications finally grow after years of on and off starts.
