The emerging field of printed electronics requires a suite of functional materials for applications including flexible and large-area displays, radio frequency identification tags, portable energy harvesting and storage, biomedical and environmental sensor arrays,5,6 and logic circuits.
Boron nitride nanotubes (BNNT) are close structural analogs of carbon nanotubes (CNT), which are high aspect ratio nanotubular material, where carbon atoms are alternately substituted by nitrogen and boron atoms.
Professor Rivnay (Northwestern University, USA) discusses using organic mixed conductors as an alternative to efficiently bridge the ionic world of biology with contemporary microelectronics.
A nanocomposite is typically defined as a mixture between a host material (e.g., polymer matrix) and nanofillers with at least one dimension of less than 100 nm.
