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.

Deep Optics

Deep Optics is an Israeli company which designs flat, dynamic liquid crystal lenses for human vision-related applications. Its first product is adaptive diopter sunglasses for the correction of presbyopia, released under its consumer-facing brand 32°N. Future target uses of this technology include augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) headsets, where the lenses could adjust for prescriptions and solve the vergence-accommodation conflict.
