Invisible, stretchable circuits

Invisible, stretchable circuits

Mar 19, 2018 United States
Electrically conductive films that are optically transparent have a central role in a wide range of electronics applications, from touch screens and video displays to photovoltaics. These conductors function as invisible electrodes for circuit wiring, touch sensing, or electrical charge collection and are typically composed of transparent conductive oxides. But, they have a weakness. Most transparent conductors are mechanically stiff.…

Materials sandwich breaks barrier for flexible solar cell efficiency

Mar 14, 2018 United States
Solar cells have great potential as a source of clean electrical energy, but so far they have not been cheap, light, and flexible enough for widespread use. Now a team of researchers has found an innovative and promising way to improve solar cells and make their use in many applications more likely.

Poisons Return in Electronics and Electrics: Escape Routes

Poisons Return in Electronics and Electrics: Escape Routes

Mar 8, 2018
There is a flood of new electronic and electrical devices reintroducing poisons very similar to those in tobacco smoke, diesel fumes, asbestos and other killers. There has been no tracking of what is arriving, assessing toxicity and likely prevalence. Uniquely, the new IDTechEx report, "Toxigen Materials and Alternatives in Electronics/ Electrics 2018-2028" now does just that.
