Scientists break resistant touchscreens




Scientists have developed a method to make, so there is less chance of cracking such as a user’s smartphone drops. Touchscreens significantly firmer Use is made of flexible electronic devices.

The method was developed by researchers at the University of Akron. According to the authors, they have found a way to make placed. On a polymer layer, a layer of flexible and transparent electronics The electronics layer is formed by a network of copper nano-wires. In addition, the authors claim that the two layers are combined as transparent as a conventional touch screen, which is made from indium tin oxide. However, displays of the University of Akron are stronger because of their flexibility and can conduct electricity better.

By using the new, flexible layer electronic touch screens displays of mobile phones can be much stronger. That should ensure that a screen is no longer breaks such as a smartphone user unit is dropped. The scientists believe their method for robust touchscreens can compete with existing, conventional touch screens, partly because production is cheaper in theory.

The scientists have published their findings in the journal Nano of the American Chemical Society. As yet it is unclear when the flexible, robust touch screens are going to be produced commercially and which manufacturers are interested.
