The new polymer $20 now in circulation may look and feel fake, but it's designed to stop counterfeiting.
Novel engineering adds brief laser impulses to 3D, inkjet-printed blood vessels to form capillaries, resulting in a complete and functional artificial organ made of polymers and biomolecules.
Many uses in store for new polymers that change color when physically stressed, researchers say.
Polymer Vision is taking E Ink to rollable places with its Readius -- a device that rolls a 127mm (5-inch) screen into a compact form factor, making it far more portable than Sony's Reader
Technology first discussed years ago might power your next laptop, replacing the fire-hazardous, but commonly used, lithium ion.
Researchers at Bell Labs clear the first hurdle to potentially increasing Internet speeds to well above today's fastest rates.
Several promising research efforts are under way to use organic polymers as material for the production of microelectronics, including transistors and displays.
