Nanotech printing on the way

A New Hampshire company, putting down Silicon Valley roots, is developing nano-printing technologies that could eventually make better electronics, labeling and even the foundation for human skin cells.

The business, called Dimatix, currently employs about 50 people in its Santa Clara offices, where it is developing ink-jet printing technologies for a wide range of possible uses. Some futuristic uses of Dimatix's super-small ink jets could include making semiconductor interconnects, or electronic screen displays so thin and flexible they wrap around a column in a department store.

The Dimatix ink-jet head can put down 100,000 drops a second. "If we have a device with 300 of these jets, we can put down 30 million drops per second," Bibl said. "That is equivalent to the rate of 30-megabit-per-second high-speed DSL line."
