Electronic probe report published in Organic Electronics
A new protocol for measuring the conductivity in conductive 3D materials has been published in the journal of Organic Electronics by researchers at RISE and the Laboratory of Organic Electronics. The system uses two sets of four-point probes to measure both across the conductive material and through, measuring the conductivity in plane and out of plane. This allows a better characterization and understanding of newly created materials which aids the researchers in determining which applications the materials could be used in.
Here’s what lead author Dr Xin Wang had to say about her research and publication:
‘This new characterization procedure for measuring in and out of plane conductivity is a useful tool to investigate new materials that we create. The method allows measurement throughout a material so that bulk properties are considered rather than just the surface properties, consequently allowing the eventual anisotropic conductivity to be measured and quantified. With validation of known materials we believe this technique could be an asset to readers of the scientific literature hence why we chose to publish the report.’
