Method could pave way for lower cost, more flexible devices Imagine owning a television with the thickness and weight of a sheet of paper. It will be possible, someday, thanks to the growing industry of printed electronics. The process, which allows manufacturers to literally print or roll materials onto surfaces to produce an electronically functional device, is already used in organic solar cells and organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) that form the displays of cellphones. Although...

Organic thin film transistors (TFTs) have attracted much attention due to their wide and potential applications in, e.g., flexible displays, radio frequency identification cards, and sensors. Pentacene TFTs, in which gold (Au) source/drain electrodes are commonly used as the charge-injecting metal, are particularly attractive on account of their large mobility (~ 1 cm2 V-1 s-1) and high on/off ratios (>105), particularly when compared to those for amorphous silicon TFTs. Although some...

Berkeley Lab Researchers Show the Way Forward for Improving Organic and Molecular Electronic Devices Future prospects for superior new organic electronic devices are brighter now thanks to a new study by researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)´s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab). Working at the Lab´s Molecular Foundry, a DOE nanoscience center, the team has provided the first experimental determination of the pathways by which electrical charge is...

Sony Unveils New 'Crystal LED Display' At CES
2012-01-11 12:40:16

Sony joined the ranks of the rest of its counterparts at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics show by unveiling new television technology. The company showed off its "Crystal LED display" which uses miniature light-emitting diodes in place of pixels.  Sony uses 6 million LEDs mounted on the front of the display. Sony said the Crystal LED display has about three and a half times higher contrast in a light environment, 1.4 times wider color gamut and about 10 times faster...


Word of the Day
barratry
  • The offense of persistently instigating lawsuits, typically groundless ones.
  • An unlawful breach of duty on the part of a ship's master or crew resulting in injury to the ship's owner.
  • Sale or purchase of positions in church or state.
This word ultimately comes from the Old French word 'barater,' to cheat.
