Abstract:
IBM Research has emerged as the winner in the ITRI sponsored Global Nano Innovation Contest with its Graphene Nanoelectronics: Wafer Scale Single Atomic Layer Carbon RF Devices and Circuits. ITRI announced the list of winners on October 5 after fierce competition. With high conductivity graphene has become a hot emerging material which can be applied to the ultrahigh speed and low power digital and analog devices and optoelectronics. IBM has innovatively applied graphene to the RF amplifier and hopes to extensively apply to high frequency telecommunication electronic products such as cell phone and medical instruments.

ITRI Announces Winners of Global Nano Innovation Contest Oct 5: IBM Wins With RF Amplifier Using Graphene Innovation Concepts

Taipei, Taiwan | Posted on October 7th, 2011

Chen Liantai, director of the ITRI Nanotechnology Center, said: In recent years, booming development of nanotechnology around the world has produced new phenomenon, new properties and new theory research results in nanotechnology. If nanotechnology prototype design can be integrated to practical system applications, more innovative and valuable nanotechnology related products will be born. Therefore, ITRI hopes to inspire the researchers across the world and the advanced industries to pay attention to innovative applications and development of nanotechnology through sponsoring the Global Nano Innovation Contest, and hopefully another Richard Feynman, the father of nanotechnology, will be born.

The University of Waterloo won the second prize with its Nanosensors for X-ray Radiation Dosimetry in a Wireless Network and NASA won the third prize with A Nano Chemical Sensor in a Cell Phone; another entry by IBM won Honorable Mention with Carbon Based Touch Panel Transparent Electrodes Using Graphene/ Nanotube; Bangor University also won Honorable Mention with 3D Nano-Structures for Enhanced Performance of Organic Solar Cells, and National Tsing Hua University also won Honorable Mention with Intelligent Poisonous Gas Purifier.

The Global Nano Innovation Contest is the first international competition for realizing nanotechnology prototype product applications. After passing the first stage contest, the team finalists entering the second stage must realize their creative ideas and produce quasi-commodity accepted by the market and protected by patent in the shortest period of 8 months! This is extremely challenging! The titles of entries to this contest are varied and respectively applicable to nanoelectronics, biochemistry, sensing device and the energy resources fields. They are of extremely high potential and market value in terms of innovation and commercialization.
