Wire Feedstocks for Metal Additive Manufacturing

Wire Feedstocks for Metal Additive Manufacturing

Metal additive manufacturing has been on the rise for many years. Predominantly led by the adoption in high value applications like aerospace & defence and medical. The majority of printer processes use a powder feedstock. This is mainly for powder bed fusion but material jetting and binder jetting are also gaining traction (each with different material requirements and economics).

Join the IDTechEx Webinar on Photovoltaics Materials Opps 10th July

There are many solar markets only accessible with technologies beyond silicon. They include transparent and flexible film solar, underwater and indoor solar. Consider lightweight photovoltaic film on the sides of buildings that cannot support heavy glass. Film retrofits on buses and boats to boost range.

Thermal Interface Materials: Diverse, Essential, and Evolving

Thermal Interface Materials: Diverse, Essential, and Evolving

This article highlights some key material development trends. More specifically, approaches to increase the thermal conductivity (in W/mK) of TIMs are considered. This is an important trend because the IDTechEx assessment is that the market, in absolute terms, for high or ultrahigh thermal conductivity TIM materials, will inevitably rise.

Emissive QLED: the ultimate display technology?

Emissive QLED: the ultimate display technology?

In this article we discuss emissive QDs. This is potentially the ultimate display technology since it can offer printability, ultra-narrow FWHM and thus ultranarrow color gamut, high efficacy, etc. The challenges are however many, and the technology roadmap is long.
