Research Boosts Stability of Perovskites, Helps Silicon Solar Cells

Research Boosts Stability of Perovskites, Helps Silicon Solar Cells

A change in chemical composition enabled scientists to boost the longevity and efficiency of a perovskite solar cell. The new formula enabled the solar cell to resist a stability problem that has so far thwarted the commercialization of perovskites. The problem is known as light-induced phase-segregation, which occurs when the alloys that make up the solar cells break down under exposure to continuous light.

Printing Electronic Features into Paper Based Products

Printing Electronic Features into Paper Based Products

PRISMADE LABS is the culmination of more than 10 years of pioneering work in the field of mass printed, electronic functionalities. With the brand-new PRISMA ID technology PRISMADE LABS have solved the puzzle of printed and secure identification. In 2017 they have partnered with edding, a global leader and synonym for creative and industrial markers. Together, they are developing unique technologies, inks and materials that will send your handwriting to the cloud. With our team of print, software, and project innovation engineers we work closely with our customers to connect their need for anti-counterfeiting, brand communication or track & trace with the digital services that consumers are expecting today.

Micron Thin Coating Waterproofs Electronic Device

Micron Thin Coating Waterproofs Electronic Device

HZO has set the world standard in technology solutions that protect electronics from corrosion and extended liquid immersion. A durable thin film is applied directly to the components of a device, creating a physical barrier between the vital circuitry and any kind of corrosive liquid. The company's advanced nanotechnology provides innovative liquid protection from the inside out, and our patent-protected materials, process and equipment provide an end-to-end solution that allows flexibility for manufacturers to develop new product features and functionality, while giving end-users the freedom to do more with the electronic devices they rely on.

Ink-based conformable package-level EMI shielding

Ink-based conformable package-level EMI shielding

Ink-based conformable package-level EMI shielding: a megatrend or supplier push? In this article we consider the trend towards ink-based conformable package-level EMI shielding. The more general trend towards conformable package-level shielding is a major one, and is already in full swing. Indeed, many products have already adopted such coating, replacing the established bulky lid-based shields.

Roll-Up TVs and Bendable Smartphones: Choices for Flexible Electronics

Roll-Up TVs and Bendable Smartphones: Choices for Flexible Electronics

A future with foldable, bendable, flexible and ultrathin electronics is fast becoming our present. The materials responsible for these consumer goods are typically polymers — plastics — that conduct electricity. To better understand this promising class of substances, scientists developed a technique that uses light to quickly and accurately test materials' conductivity — and potentially reveal behavior that other methods could not.
