redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Research teams from a pair of US universities have joined forces to develop the world’s fastest thin-film organic transistors, demonstrating that this type of experimental semiconductor technology could become the foundation for low-cost high-resolution television screens and similar electronic devices. The developers, who hail from the Stanford School of Engineering and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL), explained in...

Blood, Milk And Mucus Are The Future Of Computer Engineering
2012-03-08 05:52:07

Researchers have successfully taking a first step towards building biodegradable display screens for electronic devices. Tel Aviv University researchers have created protein-based transistors from organic materials found in the human body. They used blood, milk and mucus proteins to help take the first step in making silicon an outdated formula to build semi-conductors. The TAU researchers said when they applied the organic materials to any base material, the molecules self-assembled...

In the quest to develop flexible plastic electronics, one of the stumbling blocks has been creating transistors with enough stability for them to function in a variety of environments while still maintaining the current needed to power the devices. Online in the journal Advanced Materials, researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology describe a new method of combining top-gate organic field-effect transistors with a bilayer gate insulator. This allows the transistor to perform with...

Out of sight is not out of mind for a group of Hong Kong researchers who have demonstrated that burying a layer of silver nanoparticles improves the performance of their organic electronic devices without requiring complex processing. Their findings in a report published in the journal Applied Physics Letters, which is published by the American Institute of Physics (AIP). A team led by Professors Paddy Chan and Dennis Leung of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University has shown that a simple layer...
