Printers are becoming more and more versatile. Now they can even print sensors and electronic components on 2D and 3D substrates. A new, robot-assisted production line allows the process to be automated. Continue reading “Circuits and sensors direct from the printer” »
With the introduction of curved smartphones, flexible electronic goods are gradually moving to the center stages of various markets. Flexible display technology is the culmination of the latest, cutting-edge electric cell device technology. Scientists have now developed a bendable organic carbon nano compound-based 64bit memory. It shows improved data performance by limiting the direction of electric currents. Continue reading “Breakthrough development of flexible 1D-1R memory cell array” »
A team of researchers has discovered that graphene can be stretched to create tiny nanobubbles in which electrons generate the same energy levels that otherwise would require an extremely strong magnetic field. The discovery provides a clue to the manipulation of electrons in graphene, which in turn could lead to a new generation of ultra-small, ultra-efficient electronic devices.
