2018 saw a significant step for aerogels in consumer electronics

2018 saw a significant step for aerogels in consumer electronics - but what is an aerogel? The Dell XPS 13 launched at CES 2018 and included the use of a material called silica aerogel for improved thermal performance. Aerogels are often dubbed "space-age technology" with most internet searches directing the reader towards use cases in the NASA stardust probe and Mars Rover, but the history, material diversity, and commercial status are very different.

Solution for next generation nanochips comes out of thin air

Solution for next generation nanochips comes out of thin air

Researchers have engineered a new type of transistor, the building block for all electronics. Instead of sending electrical currents through silicon, these transistors send electrons through narrow air gaps, where they can travel unimpeded as if in space.

Electronic skin points the way north

Electronic skin points the way north

Researchers have developed an electronic skin with magnetosensitive capabilities, sensitive enough to detect and digitize body motion in the Earth's magnetic field. As this e-skin is extremely thin and malleable, it can easily be affixed to human skin to create a bionic analog of a compass.

A way to control the colour of OLEDs

A way to control the colour of OLEDs

Organic light-emitting diodes are used in smartphones and televisions to facilitate the high-contrast display of colours. Conjugated polymers are also often employed as organic semiconductors in such diodes. Researchers have found out how the spatial structure of these polymers can be used to control the colours of the OLEDs and help to increase the brightness of monitors.
