Paint-on plastic electronics


R&D Magazine – “This is for the first time a thin-layer, conducting, highly aligned film for high-performance, paintable, directly writeable plastic electronics,” says Jinsang Kim, U-M professor of materials science and engineering, who led the research published in Nature Materials.

Kim’s group approached the problem by making smarter semiconducting polymers. They wanted a liquid polymer solution they could brush over a surface, and the molecules would automatically align with one another in the direction of the stroke, assembling into high-performance semiconducting thin-layer films. more> http://tinyurl.com/bq5fooe
