Ink-based conformable package-level EMI shielding

Ink-based conformable package-level EMI shielding

Ink-based conformable package-level EMI shielding: a megatrend or supplier push? In this article we consider the trend towards ink-based conformable package-level EMI shielding. The more general trend towards conformable package-level shielding is a major one, and is already in full swing. Indeed, many products have already adopted such coating, replacing the established bulky lid-based shields.

Roll-Up TVs and Bendable Smartphones: Choices for Flexible Electronics

Roll-Up TVs and Bendable Smartphones: Choices for Flexible Electronics

A future with foldable, bendable, flexible and ultrathin electronics is fast becoming our present. The materials responsible for these consumer goods are typically polymers — plastics — that conduct electricity. To better understand this promising class of substances, scientists developed a technique that uses light to quickly and accurately test materials' conductivity — and potentially reveal behavior that other methods could not.

Ultrathin Organic Solar Cell is Both Efficient and Durable

Ultrathin Organic Solar Cell is Both Efficient and Durable

Scientists have succeeded, in collaboration with international partners, in creating an ultrathin organic solar cell that is both highly efficient and durable. Using a simple post-annealing process, they created a flexible organic cell that degrades by less than 5 percent over 3,000 hours in atmospheric conditions and that simultaneously has an energy conversion ratio--a key indicator of solar cell performance--of 13 percent.
