Printed graphene circuits survive 20 wash cycles

08 November 2017Researchers at the University of Cambridge have incorporated washable, stretchable and breathable electronic circuits into fabric, opening up new possibilities for smart textiles and wearable electronics. The circuits were…

Designing the microstructure of printed objects

Today’s 3-D printers have a resolution of 600 dots per inch, which means that they could pack a billion tiny cubes of different materials into a volume that measures just 1.67 cubic inches.Such precise control of printed objects’…

High precision control of printed electronics

05 July 2017It is now possible to create devices that switch rapidly at a threshold voltage, say researchers from the Laboratory of Organic Electronics at Linköping University. This could enable the control of current state in printed…
