Kateeva says its new manufacturing equipment can produce affordable displays based on organic light-emitting diodes.
A simple way to print circuits on a wide range of flexible substrates using an inkjet printer has eluded materials scientists. Until now.
Polymer glue helps fracture-prone high-capacity batteries last through more charges.
The appearance of indium gallium zinc oxide transistors in iPads shows that the display industry is poised to begin churning out a new breed of high-performance screens.
Drawing on artificial-intelligence capabilities, PARC researchers are developing software meant to help make manufacturing accessible to people without manufacturing expertise.
Computer maker HP plans to release a 3-D printer—but that doesn’t necessarily mean a personal printing revolution is afoot.
"Capillary charges", which act like magnetic poles on the surface of liquids, can pull millimetre-sized building blocks together, a technique that promises a new era of mesoscopic-scale manufacturing.
Cheap, simple water filters made of plant xylem could dramatically reduce the incidence of water-borne diseases in places without access to clean drinking water, say engineers.
If you thought a blob of oil is a good-for-nothing, useless, errr, blob, here's a video that will make you think again.
Magnetic hard discs can store data for little more than a decade. But nanotechnologists have now designed and built a disk that can store data for a million years or more.
