Flexible thin film encapsulation and barriers: evolution of technology

Flexible thin film encapsulation and barriers: evolution of technology

Sep 26, 2018 Worldwide
It took a decade and half to enable the first commercial products using flexible barrier or thin film encapsulation technologies. Contrary to some assumptions however, this success does not mean that the question of barrier technology is forever settled. Indeed, there is still much work to do to render flexible barrier technology a ubiquitous, widely-available, and low-cost component in devices of all sizes, sensitivity levels, flexibility degrees, and so on.

Graphene commercialization: a look back at the story so far

Graphene commercialization: a look back at the story so far

Sep 25, 2018 Worldwide
Graphene is not a young material: the Nobel Prize was awarded in 2010 and the first pioneering firms were established before that c. 2006. Graphene thus has more than a decade of commercial experience already. As IDTechEx have argued previously, after all this time, graphene is becoming increasingly available and affordable and is finally findings its first wave of volume markets. In this article, we will look at the evolution of graphene…
