Researchers at UCLA demonstrate their fully stretchable OLED. They achieved the feat by sandwiching a carbon nanotube-polymer blend on either side of a light-emitting plastic.
Researchers at Stanford are making transparent battery electrodes that could power future gadgets.
Ali Javey, professor of electrical engineering and computer science at the University of California, Berkley, shows Technology Review how his lab prints electronic skin.
At the Display Week conference in Seattle, the company E Ink demonstrated its latest electronic display paper prototypes. The devices show crisper, brighter color, and are being combined with flexible backplanes from new owner PVI.
Fiorenzo Omenetto, associate professor of biomedical engineering and physics at Tufts University School of Engineering, explains his work in silk optics.
New chemistry and microsurfaces have led to super oil-repellent materials that are self-cleaning.
An applied magnetic field creates waves in a liquid containing magnetic nanoparticles (not visible here) that separate two types of microbeads based on their size. The same technique can be used to separate blood cells and bacteria.
A new process could make nanotube fibers that are strong enough to stop bullets.
For an easy-to-make adhesive inspired by mussels, possible applications abound.
Kostya Novoselov, a fellow at the University of Manchester, demonstrates his low-tech technique for making graphene in the lab.
