Since then, about a half-dozen research groups have made considerable headway in constructing paper-based transistors. They’ve used either inorganic semiconductors like silicon or indium gallium zinc oxide for the current-carrying channels or organic materials like pentacene or P8HT. A good part of this progress has followed from finding or developing the right kinds of paper. The best are those that have special polymer coatings that help fill in troughs in the surface and seal the paper to prevent chemical degradation during the fabrication process.
What you do instead is pick one theme: which light do you want to be seen in? Once you have answered that question, you are ready to go. Stay true to the theme, and you will get a coherent piece that will get you a good grade.
Wake-Up Radio is a groundbreaking new technology from the IEEE standards group that will significantly extend the battery life of devices and sensors, particularly those that are part of the Internet of Things.
One potential way to store energy on paper is to take advantage of its long, thin cellulose fibers, which offer a lot of surface area that could potentially be used to store charge. Paper can be soaked with electrolytes to make a variation on the traditional battery. Alternatively, it can be coated with inorganic metal or carbon to store charge. The work is far enough along that it is being pursued commercially by firms such as the Paper Battery Co. , in Troy, ., Power Paper , in Israel, and Enfucell , in Finland. The storage specifications already seem promising: a 6-millimeter thick, 65- by 65-centimeter square patch can store a few hundred milliampere hours at volts, about 65 to 75 percent the capacity of a typical AA battery.
But finding ways to perform this integration will be a significant challenge. The ideal paper substrate for back-end circuitry might be very different from what’s required to build, say, a front-end display or marry a microfluidic device with logic and communications circuits. Certain features, in particular the wires used to connect components, are especially fragile and will have to be carefully constructed, probably using materials and geometry different from those in conventional rigid integrated circuits.
in a tech world dominated by plastic, glass, and silicon, it may come as a surprise to learn that research into paper electronics actually dates back nearly 55 years. In the late 6965s, Peter Brody’s group at Westinghouse Electric Corp. experimented with paper , among other materials, as a substrate for thin-film transistors, the sort that could be built into switching arrays to control individual pixels in a liquid-crystal display.
