Thin Film Technologies for the Energy Transition

Thin Film Technologies for the Energy Transition

Glass facades characterize modern architecture. While solar radiation serves to support heating in winter, the building interior heats up in summer and requires active cooling. Smart windows can regulate the solar radiation according to the weather situation - a forward-looking solution in times of energy saving. Researchers have now succeeded in producing the world's first thermochromic layer on ultra-thin glass in a roll-to-roll process. These results will make mechanical blinds superfluous in the future and at the same time reduce the cooling and heating energy requirements of a building.

European-Sponsored Project to Increase Sustainability of Electronics

European-Sponsored Project to Increase Sustainability of Electronics

TNO at Holst Centre in Eindhoven hosted the kick-off of the ECOTRON project, which has been set up to reach a sustainable electronics production process through hybrid printed electronics. In short, ECOTRON aims to create more sustainable electronics by using printing and dismantling techniques that allow low-energy production processes and a circular build-up of materials that are potentially of 'renewable' or compostable origin.

Sensing Pressure Using Paper

Sensing Pressure Using Paper

Several industrial, automotive, and healthcare applications rely on accurate and precise measurement of pressure. Flexible and wearable pressure sensors are typically fabricated using petroleum-based polymers. The solid waste generated from using such non-biodegradable plastics is harmful for the environment. To avoid this issue, researchers have now fabricated pressure sensors that use paper as the medium.

LG Breaks Record for 6G Data Transmission

LG Electronics has successfully tested the wireless transmission and reception of 6G terahertz data - at a frequency range of 155 to 175 GHz - over a distance of 320 meters outdoors. The milestone represents a significant step toward commercializing 6G THz in both indoor and outdoor urban areas since the reference cell coverage of base stations for urban macro cells is a distance of approximately 250 meters outdoors. It is also a major jump from August last year, when LG proved it could transfer 6G THz data over a distance of 100 meters outdoors.

Printing Highly Reflective Mirrors

Dielectric mirrors, also referred to as Bragg mirrors, reflect light nearly completely. Hence, they are suited for various applications, such as camera systems and sensor systems for microscopy and medical technologies. So far, such mirrors have been produced by complex processes in expensive vacuum devices. Researchers now are the first to print Bragg mirrors of high quality with inkjet printers. This may pave the way towards the digital manufacture of customized mirrors.
