Battery Elimination in Electronics and Small Electrics

Battery Elimination in Electronics and Small Electrics

This article series is intended to assist those designing or using electronic and small electrical devices seeking to modernise. It will also assist those in their value chains even including investors and governments. The advances revealed and predicted apply widely from medical electronics to personal and household electronics, Internet of Things and more.

Reversing the Move to Cities

Reversing the Move to Cities

While technologies are emerging for cities to be independent in food, water and energy, safe and pleasant, progress is mostly poor and global warming threatens migrants overwhelming cities. By all means, let us see the smart city advances take place that are in the IDTechEx report, "Smart Cities Market 2021-2041: Energy, Food, Water, Materials, Transportation Forecasts", but it would be prudent to try to reverse the move to cities that the UN and others see resulting in 70-80% of us in them by 2050.

Harvesting Energy from Radio Waves to Power Wearable Devices

Harvesting Energy from Radio Waves to Power Wearable Devices

From microwave ovens to Wi-Fi connections, the radio waves that permeate the environment are not just signals of energy consumed but are also sources of energy themselves.

INBRAIN Neuroelectronics Intelligent Graphene Based Neural Implants

INBRAIN Neuroelectronics Intelligent Graphene Based Neural Implants

Existing brain interfaces are based on metals such as platinum and iridium, which impose significant restrictions in terms of miniaturisation and signal resolution, and therefore cause considerable side effects. For this reason, there is a 50% rejection rate in candidate patients. Graphene Flagship spin-off INBRAIN Neuroelectronics uses a disruptive technology based on graphene which will overcome the current limitations of metal-based neural interfaces.

Low-cost Flexible Displays Poised for Growth

Low-cost Flexible Displays Poised for Growth

As increasing numbers of devices gain electronic functionality, many new applications will require some sort of display. This growth in functional, wirelessly connected devices is an exciting technological transition that could radically reshape how we interact with previously inanimate objects.

More Than 14 Million Euros for Flexible Battery Research

More Than 14 Million Euros for Flexible Battery Research

For batteries to fit into narrow and crooked spaces and to store more energy for e.g. electric mobility, flexibly adaptable cells are required. So far, however, lithium-ion battery cells have been produced in standardized formats and rigid systems.

Thermal Interface Materials in Autonomous Vehicle Componentry

Thermal Interface Materials in Autonomous Vehicle Componentry

Autonomous vehicles will be one of the most significant changes in the mobility sector in the next two decades. There are numerous technical, economical, and legal/policy considerations for successful adoption. Within this, it is worth looking in more detail at the thermal management considerations of the key components. This article will look at one specific area: the thermal interface materials (TIMs).

Polycarbonate Solar Vehicle Success

Polycarbonate Solar Vehicle Success

Photovoltaics is now a key enabling technology for land vehicles and boats. The favorite type is single crystal silicon - it used to be protected by an acrylic sheet on either side, making it bendable when being fitted, but that has strength and weathering issues. Now, much stronger, long-life polycarbonate is taking over.

Lessons Learned From the Closure of Petra Nova

Lessons Learned From the Closure of Petra Nova

Carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) is generating much enthusiasm across the world, with the hopes that it could play a major role in the fight against climate change. However, amidst this enthusiasm, the industry suffered an apparent setback in mid-2020 when the Petra Nova facility in Texas, then the world's largest CCUS facility for a coal-fired power station, was closed down.

Invisible "Keyhole" Made of Printed, Transparent Electronics

What initially looks like a simple transparent film conceals a whole new level of security. Invisible buttons are printed with conductive ink on the transparent carrier material, the position of which is known only to insiders. Such circuits can be connected to a door lock as an access code, for instance. If the buttons on the polymer film are pressed in the correct order, the door opens.
