Direct metal printing enables flexible, stretchable circuits

North Carolina State University researchers say a technique they have developed for directly printing metal circuits could enable the creation of flexible and stretchable electronics. The technique, which can use multiple metals and substrates, is claimed to be compatible with existing manufacturing systems that apply direct printing technologies. The team says it demonstrated the functionality of the technique by creating a touch sensor with a 400 pixel array into an area of 1sq cm.

Samsung develops 'world's smallest' DRAM chip

Samsung Electronics says it has developed the world’s smallest DRAM chip, in a move that widens its technical lead over its competitors. The move comes as the South Korean giant is expected to announce record operating profits for 2017.

Graphene promises success in space

In a collaboration between the Graphene Flagship and the European Space Agency, experiments testing graphene for two different space-related applications have proved promising and the Flagship is set to continue developing graphene devices for use in space.

Nanostructures control heat transfer

A research group at the University of Bayreuth have succeeded in precisely controlling temperature-dependent thermal conductivity with the help of polymer materials. The findings are likely to have great relevance to the development of new concepts of thermal insulation.

Toshiba, Western Digital settle differences

Toshiba and Western Digital appear to have settled their differences over the sale of Toshiba’s memory unit. The two companies have issued a statement which says they have resolved their ongoing disputes in litigation and arbitration, strengthened and extended their relationship, and enhanced their ongoing flash memory collaboration.

UV-B comms system transmits 71Mbit/s

Researchers at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) say they have demonstrated rapid data transfer using ultraviolet-B (UV-B) light, adding the system provides advantages over the use of visible light.

Hot electrons generate light in chips

A metamaterial developed by researchers at King’s College London uses quantum effects to turn electrons flowing through a circuit into ‘hot electrons’ and light in a highly controlled manner. According to the team, this has potential application in optoelectronics and sensing.
