According to Tomke Glier of the University of Hamburg Scientific Reports,” the University of Hamburg and DESY has developed a 3D printing-capable process that can be used to produce transparent and mechanically flexible electronic circuits. The electronics consist of a network of silver nanowires that can be printed in a suspension and embedded in various flexible and transparent plastics (polymers). This technology can enable many new applications such as printable light-emitting diodes, solar cells or tools with integrated circuits. The researchers demonstrate the potential of their process with, among other things, a flexible capacitor.
