Dual-function nanorod LEDs could make multifunctional displays
Cellphones and other devices could soon be controlled with touchless gestures and charge themselves using ambient light, thanks to new LED arrays that can both emit and detect light.
Robotics is the future of agrochemicals business
Crop protection, chemicals and robotics at first appear totally unrelated, yet IDTechEx Research finds that steady improvements in agricultural robotics will, slowly but surely, fundamentally alter the crop protection chemicals business.
Kokam, began as a company focused in manufacturing polymer processing equipment, expanded its business to designing and manufacturing Lithium-ion/Polymer secondary batteries in the late 90's. The company developed high capacity lithium polymer batteries, with over 150 battery-related patents and 500 MWh of proven field performance.
Quantum dots making inroads in displays
Quantum dots have been developed since the early 80's but it is only recently that they made an appearance in consumer products such as TVs and tablet computers. IDTechEx Research has published a new market report on quantum dots titled Quantum Dots 2016-2026: Applications, Markets, Manufacturers, and as part of this study we have looked at their impact on the display industry. Is this the technology that will enable LCD to rival OLED?
Award, thermally conductive gel for advanced semiconductor packaging
Dow Corning has announced that it garnered a 2015 3D InCites Award for new Dow Corning® TC-3040 Thermally Conductive Gel, a silicone-based thermal interface material designed to manage heat and support reliable performance for advanced semiconductor flip chip applications.
Cambridge Nanotherm make the finals of the 2015 R&D 100 Awards
Cambridge Nanotherm has been named as a finalist in the R&D 100 Awards, otherwise known as the "Oscars of Invention".
Quantum dots now showing their true colours
Quantum dots are making some serious inroads in the display industry. This was very apparent at SID Display Week this month, where several quantum dot LCD panels were showcased. Is this the technology that will beat OLED in the TV market? Maybe, but some questions still need to be answered.
New Dow Corning EA-4600 hot melt adhesive
Dow Corning introduced new Dow Corning® EA-4600 Hot Melt Room-Temperature Vulcanization (RTV) Black Adhesive for improved assembly of consumer electronics and other demanding high-volume manufacturing operations.
Model evaluates more battery electrolyte possibilities in less time
A researcher has built the Advanced Electrolyte Model, a powerful tool used to analyze and identify potential electrolytes for battery systems.
LG Display is investing heavily in OLED technology. Having lost the initiative to Samsung in the production of small OLED panels, LGD is eager to stay ahead on large OLEDs, particularly in TV. In 2013, LG commercialized a 55" OLED TVs in several regions, despite the fact that the price was much higher than that of the equivalent LCD model. LG Display is now setting up a new fab for the mass production of OLED TVs.
Flexible, printed batteries for wearable devices
A California startup is developing flexible, rechargeable batteries that can be printed cheaply on commonly used industrial screen printers.
Analyzing the Profits in the Printed Electronics Market in 2013
According to IDTechEx research, the market for printed and potentially printed electronics, including organics, inorganics and composites, will rise from $16.04 billion in 2013 to $76.79 billion in 2023.In this article, we will detailed the market size and forecast by application, highlight which companies are making money and why, and discuss the main go-to-market strategies.
Flexible electronics could transform electronic devices
Nearly everyone knows what the inside of a computer or a mobile phone looks like: A stiff circuit board, usually green, crammed with chips, resistors, capacitors and sockets, interconnected by a suburban sprawl of printed wiring. But what if our printed circuit board was not stiff, but flexible enough to bend or even fold?
DoE awards up to $120 million for battery hub to Argonne-led group
A multi-partner team led by Argonne National Laboratory has been selected for an award of up to $120 million over five years to establish a new Batteries and Energy Storage Hub.
$120 million for battery research
The Hub, to be known as the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR), will combine the R&D firepower of five DOE national laboratories, five universities, and four private firms in an effort aimed at achieving revolutionary advances in battery performance.
Dow launches new phosphate material for improved battery performance
Dow Energy Materials has developed a new phosphate-based battery material, Lithium Manganese Iron Phosphate, which increases energy density by 10 to 15 percent in battery cells.
