Thermal Interface Materials: Diverse, Essential, and Evolving

Thermal Interface Materials: Diverse, Essential, and Evolving

This article highlights some key material development trends. More specifically, approaches to increase the thermal conductivity (in W/mK) of TIMs are considered. This is an important trend because the IDTechEx assessment is that the market, in absolute terms, for high or ultrahigh thermal conductivity TIM materials, will inevitably rise.

Emerging Photovoltaics: Materials Opportunity in New $38Bn Market

Emerging Photovoltaics: Materials Opportunity in New $38Bn Market

The new IDTechEx report, "Materials Opportunities in Emerging Photovoltaics 2020-2040", is based on interviews by multi-lingual, PhD level IDTechEx analysts across the world and 20 years tracking the research and applications. They predict $38 billion dollars in 2040 without colliding with the silicon-in-glass "power station" business. There will be many opportunities for premium pricing of its new specialist materials.

The evolution of EU gas grid, and its hydrogen integration

The evolution of EU gas grid, and its hydrogen integration

The need to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) has been highlighted by several organisations and officialised by the Kyoto Protocol and subsequently the Paris Agreement in 2016.

Webinar - Energy Harvesting Microwatt-Gigawatt: New Directions

Webinar - Energy Harvesting Microwatt-Gigawatt: New Directions

Materials suppliers need to appraise opportunities at all power levels of energy harvesting. Those developing, making and using harvesters providing microwatts to GW need to see the big picture and how they can expand into it.

Upcoming Webinar on Electronics as Smart Materials

Upcoming Webinar on Electronics as Smart Materials

In this webinar IDTechEx Chairman, Dr Peter Harrop, describes a large new opportunity for added value materials suppliers. Electronics and electrics are moving from components-in-a-box to user "edit-able" composites, stretchable film and even paint.

Shadow effect - new self-powered sensor and energy harvester

Shadow effect - new self-powered sensor and energy harvester

Of 13 primary forms of energy harvesting, five harvest movement with electrodynamics clear winner because it efficiently harvests the types of movement commonly encountered. Only two forms of energy harvesting use electromagnetic radiation.

Why Are We Still Talking About Hydrogen Economy and Fuel Cells?

Why Are We Still Talking About Hydrogen Economy and Fuel Cells?

Once every ten years the promising future of a hydrogen economy and fuel cells is announced. Hydrogen over the years has had several periods of hypes, which always blow off as nothing concrete, but why are we still talking about it? And why is there still the belief of a hydrogen economy, when Li-ion batteries are dominating the market?

Materials Opportunities in Emerging Photovoltaics

Opportunities for new and improved PV materials include those that: Eliminate toxic emission from abuse or inappropriate disposal procedures notably heavy metals Improve physical performance such as transparency, stretchability, load-bearing, long life Permit integration into smart materials such as multi-mode energy harvesting laminates Improve photovoltaic performance such as efficiency, harvesting wider bandwidth Create totally new forms such as photovoltaic paint Are transparent conducting electrodes beyond ITO Act as better barrier layers to improve life Reduce cost
