A new inflection point for Solid State Technology

01.07. 2013 Pete Singer

At press time, inflection points have been top of mind, as we get ready for The ConFab. I've been reviewing all the presentations and looking forward to a fantastic event.

Transparent electrode market to grow to $5.1 billion by 2020

29.05. 2013 Solid State Technology

Transparent electrodes refer to oxide degenerate semiconductor electrodes that possess a high level of light transmittance (more than 85 percent) in the visible light spectrum, and low resistivity (less than 1×10-3 Ω-㎝) at the same time.

Flexible devices manufactured by roll-to-roll technologies to reach nearly $22.7 billion by 2017

23.05. 2013 Solid State Technology

The diffusion of roll-to-roll technologies is expected to have a marked effect in lowering the unit prices of flexible devices. Consequently, while consumption in terms of volume is forecast to rise very rapidly, revenues will increase somewhat more moderately.

Innovation could bring flexible solar cells, transistors, displays

22.05. 2013 Solid State Technology

Researchers have created a new type of transparent electrode that might find uses in solar cells, flexible displays for computers and consumer electronics and future "optoelectronic" circuits for sensors and information processing.

Printed, flexible and organic electronics sees 15.2% CAGR over the next decade

17.05. 2013 Solid State Technology

The new report from IDTechEx titled "Printed, Organic & Flexible Electronics: Forecasts, Players & Opportunities 2013-2023" finds that the total market for these technologies will grow from $16.04 billion in 2013 to $76.79 billion in 2023.
