Transistors on plastic

Last week, the Photonics and Plastic Electronics KTN put together a one day seminar that gave an overview of the activity in the UK on the topic of flexible organic and inorganic transistors. Speakers were representing both Universities around the country as well as companies that are developing transistor/backplane technologies. Inorganic, organic and hybrid versions are being developed in order to evaluate the performance of each type of device.

The truly integrated circuit is printed and flexible

The truly integrated circuit is printed and flexible

For 40 years, so called integrated circuits have integrated little more than transistors, diodes and sensors onto one piece of material but now there are much more integrated circuits arriving where most electrical and electronic components are co-deposited on flexible substrates. Those flexible substrates are key, because this new electronics will be affordable and desirable on everything from apparel to human skin and electrical and consumer packaged goods, where surfaces are only rarely flat.

SunRay Scientific launches NANOGLOW™ conductive silver inks

SunRay Scientific, a leader in solutions for flex circuit and printed electronics manufacturing, announced today that it is launching NANOGLOW™ water-based, nano-silver inks for roll-to-roll printing of conductive traces on low temperature substrates such as polyester and paper. The NANGLOW™ products are designed for flexographic/gravure printing and will be complementary to SunRay's existing MAXIGLOW™ portfolio of silver/carbon inks, dielectrics, and epoxies which are designed for screen printing of membrane switches, and other printed electronics applications.

PriMeBits memory project goes inorganic

PriMeBits memory project goes inorganic

In the European PriMeBits project, a printable electric low-voltage non-volatile memory is being developed for printed sensor, media and wireless ID applications. The main strategy is to utilize printed technology where it has a competitive advantage compared to silicon technology. The project builds on basic research of new materials and components and takes the results into prototyping of new applications. To reduce the research risk, two different technologies for the memory functionality are considered with partially overlapping application areas.

The memristor

The memristor "the missing link of electronics" was finally built in 2008, using nothing more than titanium dioxide and metal electrodes in thin films. In 2009 NIST printed them on plastic film. Now a new version involving silicon and silver thin film seems to have advantages.

Novel method accelerates progress in OLED lighting efficiency

Scientists from Philips Research and the Eindhoven University of Technology (TUe) have developed a novel method for accurately measuring the active layer in organic light-emitting diode (OLED) lighting. This is an important step forward for OLED device optimization and efficiency that is determined by the position of the very narrow zone in which the light is generated.
