Printing silicon on paper, with lasers
Washington DC (SPX) Apr 24, 2015
In seeking to develop the next generation of micro-electronic transistors, researchers have long sought to find the next best thing to replace silicon. To this end, a wealth of recent research into fully flexible electronic circuitry has focused on various organic and metal-oxide ink materials, which often lack all the favorable electronic properties of silicon but offer superior "printability." Recently, a group of researchers at Delft University of Technology, in the Netherlands, has pioneered a ... read more
