Could Graphene by the Answer to the Semiconductor Shortage?

Semiconductors, which date back to the 19th century, are used everywhere in electronic devices, from automobile systems and air conditioners to laser treatment in cutting-edge medical systems. The continuing global shortage in semiconductors impacts how high-tech products are made around the world — the automotive industry alone is expected to lose $210 billion in revenue, with major players like BMW, Volkswagen and Ford already reporting the effects.

Dispelix

Dispelix is a Finnish firm designing surface relief grating diffractive waveguides for consumer augmented reality devices. Unlike other companies' designs, they use a single waveguide layer for full RGB color — this helps to decrease weight but increases design complexity. Its in-house design software was developed specifically to solve this issue. The company is in the process of scaling production with its fab partners.

Sustainable Production, Traceability of Materials for Batteries

The success of electric cars on the markets may be determined by production methods and origin information of battery materials in the future. VTT and Geological Survey of Finland GTK launched a three-year project with their industrial partners to promote the sustainable production methods and traceability of battery materials. A promising starting point for tracing the origin is offered by the fingerprint conserved in the metals, which may directly tell where the metals were mined.
