Japanese plastics maker Teijin goes electronic with revolutionary silicon ink

Abstract:
Japanese maker of chemicals and pharmaceuticals Teijin has just acquired the US nanotechnology outfit NanoGram, which has been working on a technology to turn silicon into an ink which may allow for semiconductors to be produced at up to half the start-up costs.

Teijin is thought to have paid two billion yen, or $23.4 million for the Californian company which has been working on the silicon particle technology since February last year - it's thought with Teijin's input and industrial strength the acquisition will speed up development into a useable format.

The ink is made from particles which are under 20 nm in diameter, and NanoGram is the only company in the world which has come up with a cost-efficient and practical way to produce the ink which can be sprayed onto substrates to create transistors.
