New methods of making flexible polymer films may help to improve things such as phone displays and solar panels. Scientists from the University of California, Davis, have been testing how to use different methods to make previously soluble polymers into insoluble ones. This results in a more durable film and improves the energy efficiency of the entire process. If this methodology becomes widespread, it could result in stronger smartphone displays and lowered manufacturing costs.
