Novel sensors could enable smarter textiles
A team of engineers is developing next-generation smart textiles by creating flexible carbon nanotube composite coatings on a wide range of fibers, including cotton, nylon and wool.
The graphene community gathers in California
The graphene community will gather in California on November 14 & 15 to attend the largest business-focused conference and exhibition on Graphene and 2D Materials which takes place in Santa Clara.
The group developed printed flexible battery based on zinc-carbon chemistry.
Research Frontiers Incorporated
Research Frontiers are the patent holders of hundreds of patents describing the creation of Suspended Particle Devices (SPDs), which is a switchable light and heat blocking glass or plastic.
Research Frontiers has built an infrastructure of over 40 licensed companies that collectively are capable of serving the growing global demand for smart glass products in automobiles, homes, buildings, aircraft and boats. They are a public company.
Arzeda was cofounded by Eric Althoff, Daniella Grabs and Alexandre Zanghellini following their academic research into computational enzyme design and synthesis.
Supercapacitors Exceed the Energy Density of Batteries
Some supercapacitors will become smart materials and be sold as feedstock by value added material companies such as Dow DuPont and Nitto Denko. Which companies and when is as yet uncertain. This is part of the emerging big picture for supercapacitors that will make even their materials a multi- billion dollar business.
In-mold electronics become commercial once again
Conductive inks are a wonderfully adaptive technology. This characteristic has enabled them to stay relevant and to rejuvenate themselves over the past several decades. This is because as old markets have struggled or declined the technology has managed to find and/or create new uses. Several years ago, a new frontier called in-mold electronics (or IME) started to emerge. This frontier, as reported in the IDTechEx Research report Conductive Ink Markets 2018-2028: Forecasts, Technologies, Players, is once again becoming commercial.
Arzeda creates novel proteins, enzymes and specialty chemical products that compete on performance, cost and sustainability.
