Stanford Engineers Make Flexible Carbon Nanotube Circuits More Reliable and Efficient

National Nanomanufacturing Network - March 19, 2014 - 7:28am
Engineers would love to create flexible electronic devices, such as e-readers that could be folded to fit into a pocket. One approach involves designing circuits based on electronic fibers, known as carbon nanotubes (CNTs), instead of rigid silicon chips. But reliability is essential. Most silicon chips are based on a type of circuit design that allows them to function flawlessly even when the device experiences power fluctuations. However, it is much more challenging to do so with CNT circuits.
