Plugged in: Nanotechnology’s big challenges

Abstract:
The ability to print electronics has opened up many opportunities, both for manufacturers of electronic devices and for those making products that can now include electronic circuitry. Clothing fabric, glass, plastic and even paper are being used as hosts for circuitry, meaning that electronics are easier, cheaper and simpler to integrate than ever before.

Driving the progress of printed electronics applications are the nanomaterials that add functionality such as conductivity. Nanoparticles have played a significant role in facilitating new applications for printed electronics, for instance making conductive inks with enhanced properties.

New research is taking nanomaterials and applying it innovatively in electronics. From nanotube batteries, printed on paper at Stanford University, to flexible solar cells created using printed nanomaterials at Konarka, the link between progressive printed electronics and nanotechnology is clear.
