NanoOPS: A New Advanced Manufacturing Breakthrough

NanoOPS: A New Advanced Manufacturing Breakthrough

| May 20, 2014

Commercial nanoscale electronics manufacturing is still largely silicon-based, and expensive. A fabrication facility costs billions and requires massive quantities of water and power. Moreover, few nanoscale devices manufactured today exploit the unique properties and behaviors of nanomaterials such as nanotubes, quantum dots, and nanoparticles. Printing offers a unique approach to fabricating devices and products that […]
