Conductive Polymer Nanoantennas – Published manuscript in Nature Nanotechnology

A recent report out of the Organic Photonics and Nano-Optics group at Linkoping University has been published in Nature Nanotechnology. Shangzhi Chen and his coworkers created conductive polymer nanoantennas for dynamic organic plasmonics. These nanodisks composed of conductive polymers were shown to possess localized surface plasmon resonances. The ability of conductive polymers to switch their…

Printed polymer gels for thermoelectric applications – Manuscript Published in Nature Communications

All new printed gel electrolytes have been produced and published in Nature Communications for their use in temperature sensors based on tuneable thermoelectric properties. By adjustments in the gel composition, the materials can exhibit positive or negative Seebeck coefficient (a measure of a materials thermoelectric behaviour). Using screen printing techniques, the materials and devices can…

Electrochromic manuscript published with Front Cover Art!

Another manuscript by researchers at RISE and Linkoping University has been published in the international journal Polymers. The reports builds upon their previous electrochromic (electrochromism: change of colour with the onset of electricity) publications where they employed UV-light to pattern conductive plastics into binary logo. The current research imbeds greyscale images (photographs) into the materials…

Printed ion pump manuscript published!

A new publication has surfaced using printed electronics to manufacture bioelectronic devices called organic electronic ion pumps in large areas. While these ion pumps have been reported previously, this is the first time all printed devices have been reported. The possibility of fast, large area manufacturing for bioelectronic devices will lead to cheaper devices in…
