Reports Outline Materials Research Findings from Technical University

June 24, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- Research findings on Materials Research are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting originating from Milan, Italy, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Nano- and micro- fibers of conjugated polymer semiconductors are particularly interesting both for applications and for fundamental research. They allow an investigation into how electronic properties are influenced by size confinement and chain orientation within microstructures that are not readily accessible within thin films."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from Technical University, "Moreover, they open the way to many applications in organic electronics, optoelectronics and sensing. Electro-spinning, the technique subject of this review, is a simple method to effectively form and control conjugated polymer fibers."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "We provide the basics of the technique and its recent advancements for the formation of highly conducting and high mobility polymer fibers towards their adoption in electronic applications."
