Nano scientists going green

Abstract:
Nano scientists at the Queensland University of Technology are using a flexible polymer sheet that can be rolled up and taken anywhere to charge communications devices.

The technology is 100 nanometres thick, weighs just 10 micrograms per square centimetre and uses a cheap composite material made from carbon nanotubes one-tenth the thickness of a human hair, and conductive polymer.
