Conductive nanoparticle ink for printed electronics needs no high-temperature annealing

Fully printed organic thin film transistors (OTFTs) on a paper substrate. (a) Schematic of the device structure for a fully printed OTFT on paper. (b) Arrays of fully printed OTFTs fabricated on a paper substrate inkjet printed with the NIMS logo before adding the device. (c) An optical microscope image of fully-printed OTFT arrays. (d) A magnified optical microscope image of the individual device

Printing semiconductor devices are considered to provide low-cost high performance flexible electronics that outperform amorphous silicon thin film transistors currently limiting developments in display technology. However the nanoparticle inks developed so far have required annealing, which limits them to substrates

Is Your Medical Device RoHS Compliant?

Peter Blyth, XP Power

By 22 July 2014 all medical devices must be compliant to the RoHS II legislative Directive (2011/65/EU). The key question is, are you ready? It may feel like the deadline crept up rather fast for some, but we’ve known since July 2011 when RoHS II was published. There has been plenty of time, but if you’ve

Ferroelectric switching seen in biological tissues

An illustration of the molecular structure of tropoelastin, the smallest unit of the protein elastin

University of Washington researchers have shown that a favorable electrical property is present in a type of protein found in organs that repeatedly stretch and retract, such as the lungs, heart and arteries. These findings are the first that clearly track this phenomenon, called ferroelectricity, occurring
