NanoMarkets Announces New Upcoming Report on Nanocrystalline Silicon and Silicon Inks in Electronics

GLEN ALLEN, VA | Posted on May 11th, 2007

About the Report:
Opportunities for Nanocrystalline Silicon and Silicon Inks in
Electronics: 2007-2014
As printed electronics emerges as a force to be reckoned with, its
future will be dependent on high-performance semiconductor inks. At
present, most of the focus is on organic inks but these present serious
mobility, stability and cost challenges. As a result, a few companies are
on the verge of commercializing silicon inks based on nanocrystalline
silicon or on other silicon compounds. At the same time, the semiconductor
industry is looking for new materials as they increasingly face scaling
issues. It also investigating the potential for nanocrystalline silicon,
especially in the memory area. With so much understood about the electronic
properties and manufacturing of silicon devices, silicon-based materials
have a natural advantage in all electronics markets. Firms that are now
looking at these materials include Freescale, Innovalight, Micron, Samsung
and Seiko Epson, to name but a few There is also important work on silicon
inks and nanomaterials being done in the lab, especially in Asia.
This is the first report of its kind that analyzes and forecasts the
market potential for silicon inks and nanocrystalline materials in
electronics applications. The report examines what firms are doing in this
space today and how these important new silicon materials are likely to
evolve commercially in the future. The report also includes a detailed
discussion of how and when these materials will be used in applications
such as photovoltaics, lighting, RFIDs, display backplanes and computer
memory. It also discusses the technical issues around making
nanocrystalline materials and inks and how these materials are likely fair
in the marketplace in competition with other semiconductor materials.
