New laws of attraction: Scientists print magnetic liquid droplets

New laws of attraction: Scientists print magnetic liquid droplets

Scientists have made a new material that is both liquid and magnetic, opening the door to a new area of science in magnetic soft matter. Their findings could lead to a revolutionary class of printable liquid devices for a variety of applications from artificial cells that deliver targeted cancer therapies to flexible liquid robots that can change their shape to adapt to their surroundings.

Advanced Materials 2019 Osaka Japan 22-24 July 2019 Day One

This substantial conference was the eighth in the BIT series with a wide range of topics addressed by a global speaker lineup and audience. Here we report aspects relevant to electric vehicles. Sir David Payne of Southampton University reported on silica in photonics where hollow fiber has some advantages over silica fiber now, but we deploy enough silica fiber every hour to encircle the earth.

New EMI shielding tech boosts performance for new 5G mobile standards

Electromagnetic interference is increasingly becoming a problem today - especially for new generation mobile phones and 5G technology. To meet this challenge, Heraeus now offers a new complete solution consisting of silver ink and printer for EMI shielding. This system is both less expensive and more effective than all other options available today.

Artificial "muscles" achieve powerful pulling force

Artificial "muscles" achieve powerful pulling force

As a cucumber plant grows, it sprouts tightly coiled tendrils that seek out supports in order to pull the plant upward. This ensures the plant receives as much sunlight exposure as possible. Now, researchers have found a way to imitate this coiling-and-pulling mechanism to produce contracting fibers that could be used as artificial muscles for robots, prosthetic limbs, or other mechanical and biomedical applications.

Window film evens out indoor temperature using solar energy

​A window film with a specially designed molecule could be capable of taking the edge off the worst midday heat and instead distributing it evenly from morning to evening. The molecule has the unique ability to capture energy from the sun's rays and release it later as heat.

Printed Electronics USA: The must-attend event

Printed Electronics USA: The must-attend event

IDTechEx has studied the printed electronics market since 2002. Of course, we're not just looking at materials that are printed, but also devices that are flexible, organic, large area—in reality, there isn't a good phrase to encompass the huge set of enabling materials, processes and components that are radically changing electronics as we know it. The phrase "not conventional electronics" doesn't really cover it, as some aspects of printed electronics are mature today, having been used for many years.
