The call for papers is now open for the Innovations in Large-Area Electronics (innoLAE) conference taking place 23-24 January 2018, at the Wellcome Genome Campus in Cambridge, UK. Large-Area Electronics (LAE) is a new way of making electronics and includes printed, flexible, plastic, organic, and bio- electronics.
In science, sometimes the best discoveries come when you’re exploring something else entirely. That’s the case with recent findings from the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), where a research team has come up with a way to build safe, nontoxic gold wires onto flexible, thin plastic film. Their demonstration potentially clears the path for a host of wearable electronic devices that monitor our health.
The IDTechEx Show, also known as Printed Electronics USA, will have its next instalment from 16-17 November in Santa Clara, California. The event covers the world’s most disruptive technologies, from structural electronics to e-mobility, and energy storage innovations to advanced materials.
