Colors That Never Fade Thanks to Laser-Printed Nanotechnology
Researchers at the Technical University of Denmark have developed a sheet of polymer and semiconductor metal able to reflect colors. This is why they never fade when exposed to light. Additionally, this technique makes it possible to print more specific colors. During this process, the images are printed with a laser offering a nano-imprint. Furthermore, the image resolution is so fine, that it allows 100.000 dots per inch. To prepare this printing process for mass production, it is necessary to create the laser technology in a smaller way and find a different material for the layers of sheets.

New Possibilities for Circuit Production by Inkjet Printing
Researchers from Michigan State University have succeeded in printing the world’s first stretchable integrated circuit with an inkjet printer. Be it the elastic ground material or the circuit itself: All components are printed from electronic inks, consisting of dissolved nanomaterials and organic compounds. The next step will be printing the circuit and the OLED in one step.
