A new technique, called oxidative chemical vapor deposition (oCVD), developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), United States, could allow the low-cost production of solar cells and other electronic devices on thin, flexible materials that other processes can't easily handle, such...
Researchers at Samsung and Sungkyunkwan University, both in Korea, have come up with a way to capture power when a touch screen - the type of computing used in smart phones, laptops, and tablet computers - flexes under a user's touch. The researchers have made a film comprised of flexible, transparent...
Two researchers from the University of Cape Town (UCT), South Africa, have produced silicon nanoparticle-based inks that can be applied to flexible surfaces at a low cost. Their novel printing technique does not need the usual high-temperature processing and allows the "electronic ink" to...
Researchers at the University of Texas, Dallas, have developed a nanocomposite material that can initiate self-healing of plastic electronics, organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), and flexible solar cells. Currently, most of these devices are coated with a metal oxide thin film, which provides excellent...
A report, "Gadgets and Gigawatts: Policies for Energy Efficient Electronics," published this week in Paris by the International Energy Agency (IEA) warns that energy use by computers and consumer electronics will double by 2022 and triple by 2030, if nothing is done to check the energy use...
A scientist reported this week, at the 243rd National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society, on the development of “electronic skin” that could one day be placed as patches onto people’s arms to wirelessly diagnose health problems or deliver treatment. The patches have the potential,...
Researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology in the U.S. have used the shells of small ocean creatures called diatoms to create a new type of gas sensor, an innovation which they say could potentially lead to devices that detect pollution faster than existing sensors. The researchers created...
A joint forum combining the 4th Nano and Giga Challenges Symposium and Summer School (NGC2009) and the 14th Canadian Semiconductor Technology Conference (CSTC2009) will be held from August 10-14, 2009, at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. The focus of the forum will be applications of...
The European Union (EU) is funding a new project designed to put Europe at the forefront of new developments in the application of nanomaterials in the organic electronics and photonics sectors. The project, ONE-P (Organic nano-materials for electronics and photonics: design, synthesis, characterization,...
Researchers from the University of Southern California in the U.S. are developing novel chemical sensors made with zinc oxide nanowires that can detect chemicals with greater sensitivity than existing sensors. The article says that existing chemical sensors also require several hours of cleansing after...
