New nanotubes promise see-through circuits
We're very familiar with 'transparent electronics' here at TechRadar: it's a category that contains Amazon's Kindle 2, Sony's PlayStation 4 and all the nice looking phones from Motorola.
But now scientists at the University of Southern California have succeeded in creating genuinely see-through electronics, using nanotubes and transparent plastics.
A team at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering has made a clear, colourless disk about 5 inches in diameter that bends and twists like a playing card, but containing a lattice of over 20,000 nanotube transistors.
