Nanowires make flexible circuits

Abstract:
Electronics have been made from silicon chips since vacuum tubes began fading into history in the '60s. Nanotechnology could be the key to the next big shift. Chip-making processes use light and chemicals to etch microscopic components into wafers of semiconductors like silicon. The next wave of electronics is likely to feature microscopic circuits built on or into all manner of materials. These new circuits could be constructed from nanoscale components made en mass via quick, relatively cheap chemical self-assembly. (more on earlier article)
