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 nanowires as a semiconductor medium for printed electronics. Our expertise is in synthesis of nanowire-based inks as well as in production of fully functional jet printed electronic devices.

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

THIN, FLEXIBLE FORM FACTORS

Nanowires 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 nanowires do not require super expensive wafer fab facilities it is much easier to prepare other types of semiconductors in a form of nanowires and utilize their unique properties, which are not accessible through silicon.
