HP has developed a new method to produce large AMOLED panels, based on roll-to-rol manufacturing. They say that one of the biggest challenges to make flexible OLEDs is the alignment on large area flexible substrates. The new solution uses self-aligned imprint lithography (SAIL) to laminate a well-defined micro OLED (焜LED) frontplane unto a flexible active matrix amorphous silicon TFT backplane.
HP says they already built a proof-of-concept AMOLED device. The company claims that the… Continue

MIT's new Center for Graphene Devices and Systems (MIT-CG) has an ambitious plan - to produce a one-kilometer square sheet of graphene. They are currently starting to develop the basic science and technology - which is based on the printing press. The idea is to grow graphene in a roll to roll process. MIT hopes that if they manage to develop this technology they'll enable a whole new graphene industry.
Currently they've been able to grow small sheets only using this technology (a… Continue

Main topic will be the measurement and analysis of interaction forces between chromatographic beads and cellular layers by atomic force microscopy / spectroscopy. The analysis of the interactions is based on classical but also extended DLVO theories. The project is in collaboration with a biotechnology group on campus interested in optimizing product recovery processes by a better understanding of the involved interaction forces.
Atomic Force Microscopy, Force… Continue

Two Ph.D. (Doktorarbeit) projects are being offered in the field of supramolecular frameworks surface and interface chemistry. Diploma theses are also possible. These projects are located at the University of South Florida (USF) and are a collaboration between the electrical engineering, chemistry and physics programs. The focus of the projects centers around the growth of metal organic framework systems on surfaces, and the investigation of the related surface chemistry and interface… Continue

Graphene is strong - about 200 times greater than steel, but new research has shown that folding graphene nanoribbons can make a material that's ever stronger. The Chinese researchers call the new material Grafold.
The researchers say that while graphene is very high tensile strength (i.e. it is difficult to pull it apart) it is not strong under compression and cannot be squeezed. Grafold, however can withstand much larger amounts of compression (10-25 GPa depending on the structure… Continue
