A smashing new look at nanoribbons

A smashing new look at nanoribbons

Carbon nanotubes "unzipped" into graphene nanoribbons by a chemical process invented at Rice University are finding use in all kinds of projects, but Rice scientists have now found a chemical-free way to unzip them.

Outlook on the OLED TV market

Remember CES back in January. There was a widespread sentiment that LG was winning the OLED TV battle against Samsung. How did LG take the lead in OLED TV? And what does it mean for the other TV panel manufacturers?

Engineers envision an electronic switch just three atoms thick

Computer simulation shows how to make a crystal that would toggle like a light switch between conductive and non-conductive structures. This could lead to flexible electronic materials and, for instance, enable a cell phone to be woven into a shirt.

Flexible backplane technologies for OLED displays

Flexible backplane technologies for OLED displays

Flexible OLED displays have been in the making for the past several years. We have already witnessed many prototypes but the technology challenges have persisted and prevented full scale commercialisation. The technology challenges are now nearly solved and all the pieces of the puzzle are coming together. Already, we have seen mass manufactured mobiles phones on plastic substrates as well as examples of commercial curved (not yet fully flexible) displays.

Printing Equipment for Printed Electronics

Printing Equipment for Printed Electronics

First was the significant investment from the materials community but now the equipment supply sector for printed electronics and allied topics has turned its attention to addressing the manufacturing need within printed electronics. Around 100 players are now involved in the equipment and consumable supply for printed electronics, growing rapidly. This article explores some of the trends and key players. Despite the intense focus on inkjet printing and high volume flexo and gravure printing, these printing types are mainly used in R&D and pilot production rather than manufacturing commercial products. Indeed, the majority of products that use printed functional inks are printed by screen printing. Coming second is coating - slot die coating - which is used in processes such as electrophoretic film manufacture and super capacitors and batteries.
