Graphene at the Mobile World Congress 2017 Barcelona

Graphene at the MWC 2017 The Mobile World Congress (MWC) is an annual event held in Barcelona, which brings together thousands of device manufacturers, vendors, mobile operators, technology providers and tech enthusiasts from all over the world. It is world’s largest gathering for the mobile industry, this year event took place from 27 th February to 2 nd February in Fira Gran Via and we could not miss it. This year main theme was “THE NEXT ELEMENT”. As always, there were new phones announced, we could also see a flood of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) devices, announcement and presentation of revolutionary 5G technology, new Nokia 3310 and even smarter cars. But we find the “NEXT ELEMENT” to be carbon, in particular – graphene. During last day of the conference there was an all-day- long workshop dedicated to the material re- invented in 2004 by two professors of…

The Thin Film Industry

Thin film technologies are in constant evolution, enabling enhanced functionalities for technologically advanced devices such as:  Thin film technology can be applied to different substrate materials such as metals, ceramics or polymers. Thin film are “grown” over substrates materials as glass, silicon, and steel. The deposition process and the material choice allows to improve properties of the substrate, enhanced functionalities The diverse technologies deposition available allow to deposit over flexible substrate, polymeric, organic or objects with very complex geometrical shapes. Deposition materials for thin film processes can range from metals and pure elements to more complex compounds, such as oxides, nitrides and polymers. Source materials, in most cases, require high levels of purity to enable the desired functionality of the thin film coating. PhotonExport ensures raw materials comply to the required purity, typical 99,99% but ranging up to 6N or 99,9999% which are often required in Thin Films R&D and scientific…
