Toy transformers and real-life whales inspire biohybrid robot
Drawing inspiration from biology and the toy shelf, researchers have developed a swimming robot with a light-controlled cellular engine that can perform highly-targeted drug delivery.
Improving stability and optical properties of perovskite films
Metal halide perovskites are regarded as next generation materials for light emitting devices. A recent joint-research has developed a new and efficient fabrication approach to produce all-inorganic perovskite films with better optical properties and stability, enabling the development of high colour-purity and low-cost perovskite LEDs with a high operational lifetime.
Robotic millipede for drug delivery
A novel tiny, soft robot with caterpillar-like legs capable of carrying heavy loads and adaptable to adverse environments could pave way for medical technology advancement such as drugs delivery in human body.
World's first-ever 4D printing for ceramics
A research team has achieved a ground-breaking advancement in materials research by successfully developing the world's first-ever 4D printing for ceramics, which are mechanically robust and can have complex shapes. This could turn a new page in the structural application of ceramics.
Battery-in-screen paves way to ultra-thin smartphones
Scientists in Hong Kong and China have combined a semi-transparent arrangement of anodes and cathodes with a transparent electrolyte to make the first ever photoluminescent microbattery that can simultaneously act as a power supply and a full-colour display.
Knitting electronics with yarn batteries
Researchers have developed a rechargeable yarn battery that is waterproof and flexible. It also can be cut into pieces and still work.
Superstretchable, supercompressible supercapacitors
To make supercapacitors fit for future electrics demands like, for example, wearables and paper electronics researchers are searching for ways to endow them with mechanical flexibility.
Exploring Opportunities for Printed Electronics in East Asia
There have been three billion-dollar success stories in printed and organic electronics so far - and in each Asia has been a key driving factor.
ASU and University of Hong Kong advance flexible electronics
ASU is already a leader in developing flexible electronics through its Flexible Display Center, created in 2004 through a cooperative agreement with the United States Army Research Laboratory.
