Invisible Electronics

SpecialChem / Jul 4, 2008

One of the hottest topics in technology today is printed electronics. It is evolving so fast that the full variety of benefits arising has yet to become clear. Take invisible electronics where complete transparency, hiding from sight and possibly light bending may be involved. The world's largest conference and exhibition on printed and potentially printed electronics - the IDTechEx "Printed Electronics Europe" event - took place on 8-9 April in Dresden, Germany, a centre of excellence for the subject. Here, local startup Novaled revealed record breaking performance of its light emitting inks and hosted visits to its superb new facility. One capability that was demonstrated was the totally transparent glass window that becomes a white light when electricity is applied. Lecturers at the conference revealed that total transparency is now also possible with printed transistors and many other forms of electrical and electronic devices. For example, a watch is on the way that generates electricity invisibly from a solar cell coating on the viewing glass.
