As the market for liquid crystal displays and other electronics continues to drive up the price of indium – the material used to make the indium tin oxide (ITO) transparent electrodes in these devices – scientists have been searching for a less costly and more dynamic alternative, particularly for use in future flexible electronics.   Besides its high price, ITO has several drawbacks. It's brittle, making it impractical for use in flexible displays and solar cells, and...

Bacteria use various appendages to move across surfaces prior to forming multicellular bacterial biofilms. Some species display a particularly jerky form of movement known as "twitching" motility, which is made possible by hairlike structures on their surface called type IV pili, or TFP. "TFP act like Batman's grappling hooks," said Gerard Wong, a professor of bioengineering and of chemistry and biochemistry at the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science and the...

Conductive plastic coatings could lead to new solar cells, windows, sensors By Mike Rodewald, UCLA Oil and water don't mix, but add in some nanofibers and all bets are off. A team of UCLA chemists and engineers has developed a new method for coating large surfaces with nanofiber thin films that are both transparent and electrically conductive. Their method involves the vigorous agitation of water, dense oil and polymer nanofibers. After this solution is sufficiently agitated it spreads...

Graphene, a one-atom-thick layer of graphitic carbon, has great potential to make electronic devices such as radios, computers and phones faster and smaller. But its unique properties have also led to difficulties in integrating the material into such devices. In a paper published Sept. 1 in the journal Nature, a group of UCLA researchers demonstrate how they have overcome some of these difficulties to fabricate the fastest graphene transistor to date. With the highest known carrier...
