The graphene and the silver to avoid breaking the Iphone screen
Researchers at the University of Sussex combine graphene and silver and promise to generate crystals for the screens of the mobile iPhone more economically, stronger and more sustainable than any current screen in the market.
What would make these crystals in unbreakable for the most common accidents often have smartphones. At the moment, it is only an experiment, but it is especially promising.
Have discovered that a film coated with small silver nanowires exceeds the performance of the film ITO (what you use in current mobile screens) in terms of conductivity, along with other benefits as low power consumption, low temperature operation and durability, it is readily compatible with existing devices.
However, the silver is also a metal expensive and scarce, so while this is an improvement on the current standards, it is the ideal choice for the future by making the manufacture of these screens. And here is where the graphene.
By combining graphene with silver nanoparticles, researchers at the University of Sussex could create a movie that exceeds in performance to existing technologies, but at a fraction of the cost per screen.
What is interesting is that this type of films of graphene and silver can be incorporated into the current iPhone screens, taking into account that the graphene also increases the conductivity, which means that the devices could be more sensitive to touch and use less energy, be more resistant and cheaper than the current ones. The future looks promising.
