Nanowire devices bend and flex

Abstract:
Scientists from Harvard University, US, have used nanowires to make electronic devices on glass and plastic surfaces. The researchers made silicon nanowire field-effect transistors on both glass and plastic, and a light-emitting diode on a plastic substrate that used silicon and gallium nitride nanowires. “Our work suggests that nanowires can be readily incorporated into next-generation macroelectronics, such as lightweight display, mobile computing and information storage applications,” Mike McAlpine told nanotechweb.org.
