  1. 1. Graphene FET terahertz detectors on flexible substrates

    Author : Xinxin Yang; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : sensors; THz detectors; flexible electronics; 2D materials; Graphene; field-effect transistors; plastic substrates.;

    Abstract : Terahertz (THz) science and technology have developed rapidly over the past decades, extending the THz application areas from spectroscopy and earth and space sciences to communications, biomedicine and security sensing. Many of these emerging applications require shape-conforming, light-weight and low-cost detectors rather than existing solid-state detection technology. READ MORE

  2. 2. Functional and Flexible Light-Emitting Electrochemical Cells

    Author : Amir Asadpoordarvish; Ludvig Edman; Jun Gao; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; all-ambient fabrication; ambient-air lifetime; encapsulation; flexible; light-emitting electrochemical cells; light-emitting paper; fysik; Physics;

    Abstract : The introduction of artificial illumination has brought extensive benefits to mankind, and during the last years we have seen a tremendous progress in this field with the introduction of the energy-efficient light-emitting diode (LED) and the high-contrast organic LED display. These high-end technologies are, however, produced using costly and complex processes, and it is anticipated that the next big thing in the field will be the advent of a low-cost and “green” illumination technology, which can be fabricated in a cost- and material-efficient manner using non-toxic and abundant raw materials, and which features attractive form factors such as flexibility, robustness and light-weight.

  3. 3. Self-adaptable catalysts : Importance of flexibility and applications in asymmetric catalysis

    Author : Ester Fjellander; Christina Moberg; Jay Siegel; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; adaptable; flexible; semi-flexible; symmetry; conformational study; mechanistic study; rotation barrier; VT NMR; asymmetric catalysis; ligand design; allylic alkylation; hydrogenation; azepines; dioxaphosphepines; phosphepines; amines; phosphines; phosphoramidites; phosphinites; palladium; rhodium; Organic chemistry; Organisk kemi;

    Abstract : The topic of this thesis is the design and synthesis of biaryl-based self adaptableligands for asymmetric metal catalysis. The results discussed in papers I-III are covered, together with some unpublished results concerning substrate-adaptable catalysts. A general survey of self-adaptable catalysts is presented first.

  4. 4. Flexible and Cellulose-based Organic Electronics

    Author : Jesper Edberg; Magnus Berggren; Isak Engquist; Leif Nyholm; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Organic electronics; conductive polymers; nanocellulose; nanofibrillated cellulose; composite materials; paper electronics; flexible electronics;

    Abstract : Organic electronics is the study of organic materials with electronic functionality and the applications of such materials. In the 1970s, the discovery that polymers can be made electrically conductive led to an explosion within this field which has continued to grow year by year. READ MORE

  5. 5. Towards flexible organic electronics : photoelectron spectroscopy of surfaces and interfaces

    Author : Stina Jönsson; Ian D. Parker; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : Intensive studies of conjugated molecules and polymers are carried out all over the world with the intent of obtaining cheap and efficient organic electronic devices. The most mature application at the moment is the light-emitting diode, but also photovoltaic cells and different types of transistors shows promising results. READ MORE
