SEMICONDUCTOR PROCESSING & PRODUCTION NEWS
An Improved Wearable, Stretchable Gas Sensor Using Nanocomposites
A stretchable, wearable gas sensor for environmental sensing has been developed and tested by researchers at Penn State, Northeastern University and five universities in China.
Perovskite And Organic Solar Cells Prove Successful On A Rocket Flight In Space
Almost all satellites are powered by solar cells – but solar cells are heavy. While conventional high-performance cells reach up to three watts of electricity per gram, perovskite and organic hybrid cells could provide up to ten times that amount.
Molecular Additives Enhance Mechanical Properties Of Organic Solar Cell Material
Organic solar cells are ideal for use in flexible electronics because of the inherently malleable nature of semiconducting polymers. Recent research on the interplay between processing, thermodynamics and mechanical stability of typical photoactive layers in organic cells is providing a deeper understanding of these high-potential materials.
Painting With Crystals
Semiconductors made of organic materials, e.g. for light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) and solar cells, could replace or supplement silicon-based electronics in the future. The efficiency of such devices depends crucially on the quality of thin layers of such organic semiconductors.
Where Is Autonomous Mobility Going In Such A Hurry?
Autonomous mobility’s progress has been achieved in fits and starts, though the past few years have seen accelerated development in its enabling technologies.
Siemens And BRIDG Partner To Develop Digital Twin Solutions For Semiconductor Manufacturing
Siemens announces recently a partnership with BRIDG to drive the development of Digital Twin technologies for the semiconductor industry by providing Siemens’ PLM software portfolio to enable BRIDG’s research and development activities.
Slow 'Hot Electrons' Could Improve Solar Cell Efficiency
Photons with energy higher than the 'band gap' of the semiconductor absorbing them give rise to what are known as hot electrons.
