Flexible electronic ‘paper’ display color spectrum rivals LED and uses less energy

By Stephanie Liverani / October 18, 2016

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology in Göteborg, Sweden, developed a new electronic “paper” that is bendable, ultra thin, and transmits the same rich color spectrum of a typical LED display—but it requires ten times less energy to power it than a Kindle e-reader.

3D printing of microbatteries

By Jim Destefani / June 21, 2013

Micro Li-ion battery (SEM view above) is manufactured using 3D printing to deposit anode and cathode materials (red and purple, respectively) on gold contacts. The stack is then encased and electrolyte solution is added. Credit: Ke Sun, Bok Yeop Ahn, Jennifer Lewis, Shen J.

‘Low temperature’ processing with electric field assisted sintering

By Eileen De Guire / June 4, 2013

Shrinkage during electric field assisted sintering can lead to debonding and cracking, as shown this sample of 8YSZ sintered at 840°C. Credit: Kim; JACerS; Wiley. When I started writing this, I was on my way—literally, at 34,000 feet somewhere over Arizona—to the PACRIM-GOMD meeting this week in San Diego. While there I will be dropping…
