Polymere ink of the future in printed electronics

The energy levels of the two materials perfectly match, such that charges are spontaneously transferred from one polymer to the other, shown by Kai Xu and Simone Fabiano, Linköping University. Image: Thor Balkhed

The blue one is the donor polymer solution, the red one is the acceptor. Both pristine polymers are non-conductive. When they meet each other, electrons from the donor polymer will automatically be transferred to the acceptor polymer, leaving free moving charges on both polymers. Image: Thor Balkhed
