Phase change materials: Innovations in thermal management

Phase change materials: Innovations in thermal management
Thermal Interface Materials (TIMs) are used in electronics applications to improve the efficiency of heat transfer and reduce the operating temperature of a device. They work by improving the conduction of heat through to a heat sink, where the heat is radiated to the surrounding environment by means of convection. Demand for improved thermal management in electronic devices is ever-increasing, particularly in applications where both miniaturisation and high performance are required in one package.

Making plasma surface treatment portable

Making plasma surface treatment portable
To give manufacturers access to high powered, portable plasma treatment, Intertronics has introduced the Relyon Plasmatool. Suitable for a range of processes, substrates and geometries, the portable surface treatment system will help manufacturers in applications where the substrate is difficult to treat because of size or location.

Is flexible glass the ultimate solution?

Is flexible glass the ultimate solution?
Glass is an excellent barrier. It offers processing temperatures as well as high dimensional stability. It is also smoother and more transparent thin plastic films; however it is rigid. This limitation has created space and need for flexible alternatives. Companies have been developing flexible, transparent and high-performance barriers, as outlined in the IDTechEx Research report ‘Barrier Films and Thin Film Encapsulation for Flexible and/or Organic Electronics 2019-2029’.

Superior physical characteristics in coil anodised aluminium products

Superior physical characteristics in coil anodised aluminium products
The physical characteristics of coil anodised aluminium have been explained by Lorin Industries, stating that it provides greater durability and aesthetics than other metal products. The coil anodising process from Lorin protects aluminium from oxidation, scratching, and other hazards far better than natural oxidising, and offers more protection than is available for other metals.

Shape-shifting material can morph using light

Shape-shifting material can morph using light
A new material developed by CU Boulder engineers can transform into complex, pre-programmed shapes via light and temperature stimuli, allowing a literal square peg to morph and fit into a round hole before fully reverting to its original form. The controllable shape-shifting material, described today in the journal Science Advances, could have broad applications for manufacturing, robotics, biomedical devices and artificial muscles.

Getting the measure of etching

Getting the measure of etching
When manufacturing components from metals there are numerous options available to design engineers, some traditional, some relatively new and innovative. However, when component characteristics are very precise, complex, and high degrees of accuracy are required, the number of viable production manufacturing processes is greatly reduced.

Introducing the latest in textiles: soft hardware

Introducing the latest in textiles: soft hardware
The latest development in textiles and fibres is a kind of soft hardware that you can wear: cloth that has electronic devices built right into it. Researchers at MIT have now embedded high speed optoelectronic semiconductor devices, including light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and diode photodetectors, within fibres that were then woven at Inman Mills, in South Carolina, into soft, washable fabrics and made into communication systems.
