Large revolution, but on a tiny scale
Cima's process involves spraying or coating special silver nanoparticles onto glass or plastic. Once the film is air-dried and heated, the silver nanoparticles automatically form patterns and shapes that accomplish the same tasks as copper grids, but without the waste.
Brodd says the technology presents significant benefits for manufacturers of plasma televisions that want to cut costs in the face of shrinking profit margins.
A sharp and persistent decline in flat-panel TV prices has triggered a financial meltdown in the consumer electronics industry. Retail chains and manufacturers that initially prospered from consumers' desires for the sleek sets now face a flooded market, thanks to intense competition from discounters.
