Merck KGaA & Plastic Logic's new generation organic semiconductors

Merck KGaA & Plastic Logic's new generation organic semiconductors

Introduction and production of Merck's new organic semiconductors in Plastic Logic's displays are being planned for 2011 by Merck KGaA and Plastic Logic GmbH. Merck recently invested in the expansion of the Chilworth Technical Centre, its chemicals research site in Southampton, UK, by adding new laboratories to intensify and accelerate display material developments based on plastic electronics. As part of the project announced today, Plastic Logic has also invested in additional manufacturing equipment to accelerate the introduction of Merck's new lisicon® materials into mass production. Merck's functional materials are already used in the manufacturing process of the flexible ePaper displays contained in Plastic Logic's first consumer product, QUETM proReader, which was presented at the 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show in January.

Exploring medical uses of flexible electronics

Exploring medical uses of flexible electronics

What if a bandage could do more than just cover up a wound? What if it could help you to heal by dispensing medicine and scrubbing away bacteria? What if this technology were so cheap you could throw it away when you were done? These are questions doctoral student Dylan Farnam grapples with as he attempts to design a better bandage.

Berkeley researchers light up white OLEDS

Light-emitting diodes, which employ semiconductors to produce artificial light, could reduce electricity consumption and lighten the impact of greenhouse gas emissions. However, moving this technology beyond traffic signals and laser pointers to illumination for office buildings and homes—the single largest use of electricity—requires materials that emit bright, white light cheaply and efficiently. White light is the mix of all the colors, or wavelengths, in the visible spectrum.

New path to solar energy via solid-state photovoltaics

A newly discovered path for the conversion of sunlight to electricity could brighten the future for photovoltaic technology. Researchers with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have found a new mechanism by which the photovoltaic effect can take place in semiconductor thin-films. This new route to energy production overcomes the bandgap voltage limitation that continues to plague conventional solid-state solar cells.
