Technology opens door to ubiquitous, more easily fabricated electronic screens

In a groundbreaking new study, researchers at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities used a customized printer to fully 3D print a flexible organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display. The discovery could result in low-cost OLED displays in the future that could be widely produced using 3D printers by anyone at home, instead of by technicians in Read more about Technology opens door to ubiquitous, more easily fabricated electronic screens[…]

A new wearable electronic device that’s “really wearable”

Researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder are developing a wearable electronic device that’s “really wearable”–a stretchy and fully-recyclable circuit board that’s inspired by, and sticks onto, human skin. The team, led by Jianliang Xiao and Wei Zhang, describes its new “electronic skin” in a paper published today in the journal Science Advances. The device Read more about A new wearable electronic device that’s “really wearable”[…]

Heating quantum matter: A novel view on topology

In physical sciences, certain quantities appear as integer multiples of fundamental and indivisible elements. This quantization of physical quantities, which is at the heart of our description of Nature, made its way through the centuries, as evidenced by the antique concept of the atom. Importantly, the discovery of quantized quantities has often been associated with Read more about Heating quantum matter: A novel view on topology[…]
