Is it possible to begin a new era of cheap electronics…If this is true, the development of a new production method could make it possible to manufacture superior-quality, flexible, electronic products at an extremely affordable price.
According to Aalto University in Finland, Professor Yutaka Ohno of the University of Nagoya in Japan and Professor Esko I. Kauppinen Aalto from universities and their research team have created a quick and effortless way to create high-performance, thin-film transistors on plastic substrate, professors think that the technology for semiconductor manufacturing, carbon nanotube plastic substrates will make it so that companies can manufacture flexible electronic products, such as electronic paper, with minimal costs.
The findings are published on 6 February in an electronic form of nanotechnology in the academic journal Nature Nanotechnology. [via]
