Developing Novel Nanomaterials for Printed Electronics

Printed electronics holds an enormous potential for changing many markets, from OLED displays and lighting, to thin film photovoltaics to flexible sensors and more. Features such as unconventional forms and ease of production provide important advantages for printed electronics over conventional electronics built with wafer based semiconductors. US Nano is focused on utilizing nanomaterials as a semiconductor medium for printed electronics. Our expertise is in synthesis of nanomaterials-based inks as well as in production of fully functional jet printed electronic devices.

In addition to the clear cost advantage in certain sectors, nanomaterials can deliver important advantages over traditional wafer processed semiconductors in the following areas:

THIN, FLEXIBLE FORM FACTORS

Nanomaterials are capable of delivering attributes simply not possible with conventional semiconductor wafers, which opens up virtually unlimited form factor opportunities, including delivering semiconductors that can adhere to skin, fabric, walls and windows.

RUGGEDNESS

These materials allow for more rugged and durable products than are available with traditional, rigid and bulky semiconductors.

BEYOND SILICON

Since nanomaterials do not require expensive wafer fab facilities it is possible to prepare and deposit various types of semiconductors in a form of nanomaterials-based inks and utilize their unique properties, which are not accessible through silicon.
