Welcoming composite inks into the fold

A composite ink composed of ceramic particles dispersed in a polymer could make foldable electronics easier and cheaper to manufacture at the industrial scale. Credit: KAUST; Hassan Tahini A screen-printing approach to creating foldable circuits could make many functional devices easier and cheaper to mass produce. A method that combines...

Researchers breathe new life into paper books with the Magic Bookmark

Credit: CC0 Public Domain The University of Surrey has developed a new, cost-effective, ecological solution for augmenting the printed page with rich, up-to-date digital content. The development overcomes one of the most significant advantages e-books have over paper books, helping paper maintain its strong position in its competition with electronic media.   Researchers at the University of...

Modeling MOSFET behavior using automatic differentiation

Modeling MOSFET behavior using automatic differentiation

The electrical characteristic model is composed of multiple nonlinear equations. In order to apply AD, this is represented by a directed acyclic graph. Each vertex represents an arithmetic operation such as four arithmetic operations, logarithms, and exponents, and each node represents intermediate variables. Optimizing model parameters to minimize the difference...

Combustion creates Braille display for electronics

A Cornell-led collaboration created a system that uses combustion to inflate silicone membrane “dots,” which could someday serve as a dynamic braille display for electronics. The stretchable technology could also be incorporated into soft robots, surgical tools and wearable virtual reality equipment. Credit: Cornell University Imagine an iPad or a...

Bioengineers develop new class of human-powered bioelectronics

UCLA-designed self-powered, stretchable, waterproof magnetoelastic generator for bioelectronics. Credit: Jun Chen/UCLA A team of bioengineers at the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering has invented a novel soft and flexible self-powered bioelectronic device. The technology converts human body motions—from bending an elbow to subtle movements such as a pulse on one's...
