New polymer mixture creates ultra-sensitive heat sensor
Scientists have developed an ultra-sensitive heat sensor that is flexible, transparent and printable. The results have potential for a wide range of applications - from wound healing and electronic skin to smart buildings.
Storing electricity in paper
Researchers have developed power paper - a new material with an outstanding ability to store energy.
UK research brings quantum computing closer to reality
The UK-USF team showed that a flat sheet of pure carbon only one atom thick, called graphene, can be suitably engineered and used for this purpose when combined with atoms of the metallic element cobalt.
Composite collaboration leads to faster plastic electronics
Prof. Aram Amassian's group collaborates with Imperial College scientists to develop faster organic thin-film transistors.
Organic electronics a two-way street with new plastic semiconductor
About 30 years ago, it was discovered that some plastics, or polymers, could conduct electricity. Since then researchers have been working to make them more efficient.
