    New report on barrier layers for flexible electronics
    AZoNano
    A large opportunity lies in the development of devices in a flexible form factor that can operate without deterioration in performance, allowing them to be more robust, lightweight and versatile in their use. In order for flexible displays and photovoltaics to be commercially successful, they must be robust enough to survive for the necessary time and conditions required of the device.

    Design and manufacture of high-voltage electronics
    PCBDesign007
    “With footprint becoming an ever-increasing issue, demands on high voltage electronics design and manufacture are becoming ever more difficult to manage. Decreasing size demands and HV requirements for creepage clearances and separation are at odds with each other, meaning that modern methods need to be refined in order to maintain performance and push the boundaries of current technical requirements.”

    This wooden computer chip could make recycling electronics a lot easier
    Co.Exist
    In our quest for the next new thing in gadgets, we throw away a lot of old electronics — millions of tons of the stuff. But now there may be a biodegradable alternative for at least one part of all those devices: The chip. Researchers at University of Wisconsin have developed a chip made mostly from wood. And, what's more, they claim it works as well as a silicon-based chip.

    Researchers make scalable arrays of 'building blocks' for ultra-thin electronics
    R&D Magazine
    Complex, scalable arrays of semiconductor heterojunctions — promising building blocks for future electronics — were formed within a 2-D crystalline monolayer of molybdenum deselenide by converting lithographically exposed regions to molybdenum disulfide using pulsed laser deposition of sulfur atoms. Sulfur atoms replaced selenium atoms in lithographically exposed regions as shown by Raman spectroscopic mapping.

    Ultra-thin hollow nanocages could reduce platinum use in fuel cell electrodes
    EIN007
    The technique uses a solution-based method for producing atomic-scale layers of platinum to create hollow, porous structures that can generate catalytic activity both inside and outside the nanocages. The layers are grown on palladium nanocrystal templates, and then the palladium is etched away to leave behind nanocages approximately 20 nanometers in diameter, with between three and six atom-thin layers of platinum.

    At the core of sustainable electronics
    Environmental Leader
    There’s rightfully much ado about the climate — from extreme weather events, severe droughts and water crises to fossil fuels and the race to renewables. However, there’s far too little talk about electronics and their role in environmental ecosystems. Ironically, the folks who say, “Don’t worry, we’ll invent solutions to all our problems” are typically envisioning some technological breakthrough that will save us all.
