Low-cost and Stable SFX-based Semiconductor Materials in Organic Optoelectronics


Abstract: "In the progress of realizing the commercialization of organic optoelectronic materials, the four basic coherent factors are stability, cost, performance, and processability, all which determine the results of device applications. Spiro[fluorene-9,9′-xanthene] (SFX) has been becoming the robust building-block that fulfilling the practical requirements due to its key features of non... » read more

Power/Performance Bits: Aug. 31


Securing memory Researchers at Columbia University suggest several ways to make computing more secure without imposing a system performance penalty. The efforts focus on memory security, specifically pointers. "Memory safety has been a problem for nearly 40 years and numerous solutions have been proposed. We believe that memory safety continues to be a problem because it does not distribute... » read more

Power/Performance Bits: May 6


Boosting image quality UCLA researchers have created a device based on a new material and manufacturing process that they say could lead to a significant leap in the quality of images on smartphones, computer displays, TVs and inkjet printers. The new material and manufacturing process are used to produce semiconductors that are essential to LCDs and organic light-emitting diode (OLED) disp... » read more

Printed Electronics Gets Serious About Manufacturing


A leading indicator in the coming-of-age saga of a new technology is the enthusiasm to be in the business of supplying manufacturing infrastructure. To sell infrastructure, there needs to be a belief that there are several customers out there. At the recent IDTech conference for printed electronics, the transition to manufacturing was clear based on those who presented and some notable absences... » read more
