'Miracle' plastic

Abstract:
Jiti Nukeaw, a physicist at the King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Lad Krabang, led a team of six researchers to Rajabhat University to show off an exciting discovery - a plastic that can conduct electricity.

Jiti's "new plastic" could, he said, lead to the making of an "invisible" radio antenna, low-cost solar cells, and, some time in the future, a flat computer display that could be rolled up and stored inside a pen.

(Ed.'s note: where it states "This coating is done at the nano level (around 100 billion times smaller than the width of a human hair)" is incorrect. Nanotechnology Now Readers know that the nano-level is "less than 100 nanometers" and corresponds loosely to ~1/10,000th the width of a human hair.)
