Two case studies on markets for actuators

Two case studies on markets for actuators

At an event as large as CES, there are many technology themes beyond the traditional topic boundaries covered by IDTechEx. In this article, we discuss two such areas, both of which are close to, but slightly outside traditional areas of coverage.

A novel material for transparent and flexible displays

A novel material for transparent and flexible displays

The next generation of flexible and transparent displays will require a high-performing and flexible polymeric material that has the optical and thermal properties of glass. The material must be transparent to visible light and have a low coefficient of thermal expansion. Unfortunately, such a polymeric material has not been available.

3D printed soft mesh robots created

Researchers have created 3D-printed flexible mesh structures that can be controlled with applied magnetic fields while floating on water. The structures can grab small objects and carry water droplets, giving them the potential to be useful as soft robots that mimic creatures living on water surfaces or that can serve as tissue scaffolds for cell cultures.

Scientists boost stability of low cost, large area solar modules

Scientists have resolved a fundamental weakness in a promising solar technology known as Perovskite Solar Cells, or PSCs. Their innovations appear to improve both the devices' stability and scalability in one fell swoop and could be key to moving PSCs to market.

Graphene as an electronic substrate: production approaches

Graphene as an electronic substrate: production approaches

In this brief slide deck, we briefly outline the key aspects and challenges of growing high-quality graphene as an electronic substrate. This could take the form of a film of graphene on a wafer or another substrate. Therefore, we will consider chemical vapour deposition as well as epitaxial growth. Here, we will also outline some of the R&D progress on this topic. This slide presentation will be the first of two presentations. The second one will consider the use of graphene as an electronic material.
