6G Communications Needs Vast Areas of Printed Electronics

6G Communications Needs Vast Areas of Printed Electronics

There is a near consensus that today's 5G communications and even its planned enhancement called Beyond 5G, i.e. B5G, will not meet the burgeoning requirements of industry, healthcare, aerospace, smart cities or even home entertainment. They need the services promised by 6G communications, though that has no specifications, roadmap or even frequency decided as yet.

New Skin Patch Brings Us Closer to Wearable, All-In-One Health Monitor

New Skin Patch Brings Us Closer to Wearable, All-In-One Health Monitor

Engineers have developed a soft, stretchy skin patch that can be worn on the neck to continuously track blood pressure and heart rate while measuring the wearer's levels of glucose as well as lactate, alcohol or caffeine. It is the first wearable device that monitors cardiovascular signals and multiple biochemical levels in the human body at the same time.

CVD Graphene for Electronic Applications: 2021 Status and Outlook

CVD Graphene for Electronic Applications: 2021 Status and Outlook

Given the exciting properties, graphene has always been linked as a revolutionary material for the electronics industry. CVD graphene is cited as the ideal solution in providing a perfect single layer produced in a low cost continuous R2R process, but the manufacturing and commercial reality have proved very different. After a long period of research, and with players regularly exiting and entering the field, we are only now starting to see this technology mature and the dawn of the commercial reality.

New Modifier Increases Efficiency of Perovskite Solar Cells

New Modifier Increases Efficiency of Perovskite Solar Cells

Scientists have modified perovskite-based solar cells using MXenes -- thin two-dimensional titanium carbides with high electrical conductivity. The MXenes-based modified cells showed superior performance, with power conversion efficiency exceeding 19% (the reference demonstrated 17%) and improved stabilized power output with respect to reference devices.

Smart Sensor Bandage to Prevent Chronic Wounds

Smart Sensor Bandage to Prevent Chronic Wounds

In a time of COVID-19 restrictions and minimal travel, many people are turning to virtual doctor appointments and consultations as a safer alternative to in-person doctor visits. Researchers at are working to make this new wave of telemedicine more successful by creating an oxygen-sensing patch printed on a flexible, disposable bandage that can interact with a smartphone. This smart bandage could enable remote monitoring for the early detection of illnesses such as pressure ulcers, allowing for immediate treatment or intervention.
