Printed electronics technology is a unique, revolutionary way to manufacture a variety of electronics systems using standard graphic printing processes such as screen printing, flexography, and ink jet printing.
Isomerism is a common phenomenon in chemistry in which certain molecules have two or more distinct configurations of their constituent atoms that are consistent with their chemical formula. The absorption of an ultraviolet (UV) photon, which allows for functioning inside the excited states of the isomers, is a viable technique to induce an interaction between isomers.
There has been increasing interest in the current and potential applications of mixed ionic-electronic conducting (MIEC) membranes over the past thirty years. A new review in the journal Advanced Functional Materials considers the opportunities and challenges of these applications.
