Conductive polymers reduce light reflections on displays by 50%

Conductive polymers reduce light reflections on displays by 50%
Conductive polymers from the Heraeus Clevios line reduce the sheet resistance on flexible and foldable touchscreens by more than 50%. This considerably improves conductivity and transmission for ultra-thin conductive display layers. Clevios HY E has thus become a key material for stably and reliably producing the next generation of foldable displays and smartphones. Heraeus will present this innovation at C-Touch in Shenzhen.

Computing platform supports materials analysis

Computing platform supports materials analysis
Devices depend highly on novel materials with tailored function. A comprehensive spectroscopic analysis toolkit will shed light on the properties of a variety of materials across a broad energy range, streamlining the effort. Nanomaterials are increasingly important to new devices and, thanks to rapid advances in microscopy and spectroscopy, characterising electronic, magnetic and crystallographic structure on the nanoscale is now possible.

An alternative way to store thermal energy

An alternative way to store thermal energy
  In large parts of the developing world, people have abundant heat from the sun during the day, but most cooking takes place later in the evening when the sun is down, using fuel — such as wood, brush or dung — that is collected with significant time and effort. Now, a new chemical composite developed by researchers at MIT could provide an alternative.

Engineers develop stable plasma ring in open air

Engineers develop stable plasma ring in open air
For the first time, engineers at Caltech have created a stable ring of plasma in open air—essentially capturing lightning in a bottle, but without the bottle. Matter can exist in four distinct phases: solid, liquid, gas, and plasma. Plasmas are made of charged particles—ions and electrons—and occur naturally on Earth as lightning, in the weather phenomenon called St. Elmo's fire, and in man-made objects such as fluorescent light bulbs and plasma cutting torches.

Double-duty textile could warm or cool

Double-duty textile could warm or cool
Stanford researchers have developed a reversible fabric that, without expending effort or energy, keeps skin a comfortable temperature whatever the weather. In a paper published in Science Advances, a team led by Yi Cui, professor of materials science and engineering, created a double-sided fabric based on the same material as everyday kitchen wrap. Their fabric can either warm or cool the wearer, depending which side faces out.

Fast curing adhesive bonds SMDs on to circuit boards

Fast curing adhesive bonds SMDs on to circuit boards
Global supplier of industrial RTV silicones, adhesives, sealants, encapsulants, conformal coatings, tapes, casting and mould making materials, Techsil, has launched a new fast curing epoxy adhesive Structalit 5610 from manufacturers Panacol. This adhesive is specially designed for bonding Surface Mounted Devices (SMDs) on to circuit boards. Due to its high viscosity the adhesive is well-suited for screen printing.

Quantum materials enable route to 3D electronic devices

Quantum materials enable route to 3D electronic devices
Researchers have shown how the principles of general relativity open the door to novel electronic applications such as a three-dimensional electron lens and electronic invisibility devices. In a study funded by the Academy of Finland, Aalto University researchers Alex Westström and Teemu Ojanen propose a method to go beyond special relativity and simulate Einstein's theory of general relativity in inhomogeneous Weyl semimetals.

It's plastic and it's fantastic!

It's plastic and it's fantastic!
You know that material plastic? It’s fantastic… in terms of design that is. It is cheap, durable and light - it is the doyen of packaging, the king of all our white goods and the magic ingredient in everything from shampoo to cosmetics. Guest piece written by Terry O’Reilly, Manager, NT CADCAM.

Smart paper conducts electricity and detects water

Smart paper conducts electricity and detects water
In cities and large-scale manufacturing plants, a water leak in a complicated network of pipes can take tremendous time and effort to detect, as technicians must disassemble many pieces to locate the problem. The American Water Works Association indicates that nearly a quarter-million water line breaks occur each year in the U.S., costing public water utilities about $2.8 billion annually.
