In the Information Age, electronic devices are almost everywhere - pushing developers and researchers to find lighter and more flexible materials that could prevent interference between devices and minimize radiation exposure to humans.

A team of engineers from the University of California, Riverside reported in the latest edition of Advanced Materials the existence of a polymer-based flexible film using quasi-one-dimensional nanomaterial fillers that are surprisingly easy to manufacture and can shield from electromagnetic radiation.

"These novel films are promising for high-frequency communication technologies, which require electromagnetic interference shielding films that are flexible, lightweight, corrosion resistant, inexpensive, and electrically insulating," explains Alexander A. Balandin, senior author of the study and a distinguished professor of electrical and computer engineering at the Rosemary Bourns College of Engineering at UC Riverside, in a press release.
