Nylon can be the basis for transparent and flexible electronics 2 октября, 2021


Scientists have developed a technology for the manufacture of very thin ferroelectric nylon films that can be used to create flexible electronic devices.

Since the development of the microelectronics industry is shifting towards wearable devices and electronics, the researchers are increasingly using synthetic polymers. Although nylons were first used in the 1920s to create women’s stockings and are a popular view of artificial fibers for tissues, they also exhibit ferroelectric properties.

Materials with similar characteristics are used in sensors, actuating mechanisms, memory and energy collection devices. The advantage of polymers is that they can be ignited, and then cheap processing and create components for capacitors, transistors, diodes. However, it was before it was impossible to make high-quality thin films of ferroelectric nylons from solutions.

Scientists from the Society of Max Planck, the University of Johannes Gutenberg and the Lodz Technological University recently solved this long-time problem. They developed a method for producing ferroelectric nylon thin-film capacitors by dissolving the nylon in a mixture of trifluoroacetic acid and acetone, followed by its solidification in vacuo.

The team managed to create smooth films with a thickness of just a few hundred nanometers. The prototypes of high-performance capacitors demonstrated the reliability of ferroelectric nylons with millions of working cycles.
