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…

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…

Self-Sterilizing Microneedle Publication with Cover Art!

Researchers at the Future Industries Institute at the University of South Australia have published a report centred on microneedle patches loaded with silver nanoparticles for their self-sterilizing purposes. The idea is that in addition to delivering the desired drug molecule, the microneedles will suppress any bacterial growth where the microneedles pierce the skin. Here’s what…
