Hou, who is armed with a chemical engineering and computer background, and his best friend have come up with a business plan to produce nanomaterials that include nanowires and nanocubes using silver blended with copper, gold and even aluminum.
Using a special electrical adhesive, "we can improve conductivity by at least 10 times," Hou said. "The result of this technology is that you could have a cell phone that is thinner and lighter with much better performance. The improved conductivity means a battery can last 20 days without a charge and provide a better signal."
The fledgling technology will eventually allow cell phones that can currently only run a few programs to run numerous programs, up to 200 CPUs. And the nanowire Hou and his friend are working to develop could eventually be used in electric vehicles to extend their range between charges.
