While flexible electronics has been a well-established field with several decades of research and development under the belt, flexible integrated photonics is a nascent technology that has only started to burgeon in the past few [...]
To realize the flexible electronics in place of rigid electronics constructing on PCB substrates or glass substrates, robust film substrate with thermal resistance, strength and low thermal expansion should be developed. Specially, some applications of [...]
Thermophones are highly promising for such applications as high power sonar arrays, flexible loudspeakers, and noise cancellation devices. So far, freestanding carbon nanotube aerogel sheets provide the most attractive performance as a thermoacoustic heat source. [...]
Stretchable electronics are a new type of mechanical deformable devices which are gaining increasing interests and believed to be one of the essential technologies for the next generation electronic applications. The excellent mechanical conformability in [...]
Microfluidic is a very promising technology to improve biomedical devices and to provide diagnostic tools for the developing world. The World Health Organization has introduced a list of requirements that an ideal diagnostic tool for [...]
Our in-vitro experiments with cold plasma discharge have demonstrated frequency dependent modulation effects. If a large number of cold plasma discharges with different modulation frequencies can be generated at the same time, the time required [...]
Printed electronics have shown tremendous growth in recent years, and the demand for faster, smaller, cheaper, and more efficient printed devices is ever increasing. Inkjet printing is a technology which has demonstrated the ability to [...]
