Here are the highlights from Session 4 – Nano Materials from day two of the IEEE San Francisco Bay Area Nanotechnology Council 6th Annual Symposium“Nanotechnology: State of the Art & Applications”
Presentation archive for talks not linked below. Updated as the council receives the presentations.
Eric Granstrom, General Manager and V.P. of R&D, Cima NanoTech – “Self Aligning Nano Technology for Electronics.”
- First product Self Aligning Nano Technology for Transparent Electronics (SANTE) is transparent conductive film produced by self aligning silver nanoparticles.
- For the same transparency, it has 1/10 the resistance of Indium Tin Oxide (ITO). Also doesn’t yellow shift the color.
- Based upon current consumption, it is projected that there is only a 7 year supply of ITO. China controls 80% of this supply.
- Largest initial market is displays which have one or more (LCDs have two) conductive films.
