Flexible power of a conductive polymer: A new material promises the next generation of organic electronics

For decades, field-effect transistors made possible by silicon-based semiconductors have driven the electronics revolution. But in recent years, manufacturers have encountered hard physical limits for further size reductions and efficiency gains for silicon chips. It has scientists and engineers looking for alternatives to conventional metal oxide semiconductor transistors (CMOS). “Ecological semiconductors offer several distinct advantages …

Ionic conductive fibers provide a new track for smart and functional textiles

Experiment with ionic fibers. Credit: Claude Huniade Electronically conductive fibers are already used in smart textiles, but in a recently published research article, ionically conductive fibers have proven to be of increasing interest. The so-called ion fibers achieve higher flexibility, durability and match the type of lead our body uses. In the future, they may …
