See-through circuitry
Thuwal, Saudi Arabia (SPX) Aug 15, 2016
High-performance electronic circuits made entirely from transparent materials could have countless applications, from head-up displays on car windscreens to transparent TV sets and smart windows in homes and offices. Researchers at KAUST have found a way to make transparent transistors and other essential components of electronic circuitry using inexpensive and readily available materials and a simple fabrication technique1. Indium tin oxide (ITO) is the current material of choice for electronics ... read more
