Comments from S.I.D. 2011

S.I.D. is the successful display technology exhibition and conference. It was held last week in Los Angeles and had well over 5,000 attendees, and it included some aspects relevant to printed and flexible electronics. The show is often a great gauge of current interest in different display technologies and this year it was evident that the latest focus is on 3D television and touch screen technologies.

New solar technology could break photovoltaic limits

Photovoltaic (PV) efficiency is a significant problem for today's commercial solar panels, which can collect only a theoretical maximum of about 30 percent of available light. Now, a team that includes a University of Missouri engineer is developing a flexible solar film that can theoretically capture more than 90 percent of available light. Prototypes could be produced within the next five years.

Can foreign EV makers prosper in China?

Can foreign EV makers prosper in China?

To understand the burgeoning electric vehicle EV industry, it is important to look at all forms of electric vehicle, land, sea and air. China has ambitions across all of them but none of the EV leaders are currently in China. It is bargaining access to its potentially large internal EV market in exchange for the intellectual property of aspiring foreign participants.
