Through organic electronics it will be possible to print electronics into flat and flexible surfaces like paper and plastic. Because plastic transistors use solvent-processable organic or polymer materials, they can be fabricated using an inkjet-type printer.
A new nanotechnology thin film material for a switchable mirror can be switched between reflective and transparent states. The mirror consists of two layers of glass enclosing a cavity coated with a magnesium and titanium alloy film 40 nanometers thick. Switching is achieved by introducing gas containing a low concentration of hydrogen or oxygen into the space between the panes.
