Danish researchers are developing a new class of flexible, eco-friendly thin-film electronics, which they call 'fleco-ionics'.
Australian researchers have collaborated to develop a solar-absorbing, ultrathin film that has great potential for use in solar thermal energy harvesting.
Japanese researchers have discovered superconductivity in thin films of titanium oxide (Ti4O7) and gamma-phase trititanium pentoxide (γ-Ti3O5), in a breakthrough that could one day be used to develop ultrafast computers.
US researchers have discovered a nanoscale-thin film material with what is said to be the highest ever conductivity in its class, in a breakthrough which could lead to smaller, faster and more powerful electronics.
US researchers have synthesised thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about 50 times higher than the copper films currently used in electronics.
The thinnest, smoothest layer of silver that can survive air exposure has been developed by a research team led by the University of Michigan — and it could change the way touch screens and flat or flexible displays are made.
Japanese scientists have demonstrated the potential of a new, thin-film ferroelectric material that could improve the performance of next-generation sensors and semiconductors.
A new discovery has turned previously accepted knowledge about ferroelectric materials on its head. Northwestern University researchers have found that a unique class of ferroelectric oxides responds in an unexpected way to stress.
A UNSW research team has achieved the world's highest efficiency for a full-sized thin-film solar cell using a competing thin-film technology known as CZTS.
A team of researchers has developed a new method for creating thin films of boron-doped diamond at temperatures low enough to coat electronic devices.
The University of South Australia’s Thin Film Coatings Group has entered into a strategic alliance with Swedish research and development company Arubedo AB to bring new electronic products to market.
