New speedy, high-res nanolithography method to allow the rapid prototyping of electronics

By / August 4, 2010

A new nanolithography process promises to speed up the “printing” of nanoscale patterns, which could soon allow investigators to quickly make prototypes of test electronic devices. Of course, various forms of fairly high resolution nanolithography have been around for a while. But, heretofore, they have been relatively time consuming. These have usually employed a single…

Graphene transistors to grow in size, reduce cost of electronics

By / June 22, 2010

In the advanced online edition of Nature Nanotechnology, researchers have developed a new method to produce graphene sheets leading to a diagonal dimension of 30 in. – larger than ever before. This could result in cheaper electrodes for flexible displays. The graphene has already been used to construct a touchscreen that is twice as flexible…
