Sprayable Antenna Could Help Objects Communicate

Sprayable Antenna Could Help Objects Communicate
A sprayable antenna made of MXene could let any surface function as an antenna, no matter its shape.

Developed by a team from Drexel University, the MXene material is made up of MXene, a form of highly conductive titanium carbide that dissolves in liquid to create a sprayable ink. When applied to a surface at layers only ten of nanometers thick, the MXene antennas boasted a performance comparable to standard antennas and much better than other 2D antennas.

According to the team, the MXene antennas can be layered thin enough to remain transparent, and could be used on wearable or flexible electronics.
