Nano-Proprietary Develops Thin Film Transistors Utilizing Carbon Nanotubes For Flexible Microelectronic Applications

Austin, Texas-based Nano-Proprietary, Inc., through its subsidiary, Applied Nanotech, Inc. (ANI), today announced that it has developed a low-cost process for manufacturing thin film transistors utilizing monolayers of well-dispersed single wall carbon nanotubes. The monolayer random network of single wall carbon nanotubes was deposited at room temperature from a solution using a process that is fully compatible with polymeric substrates that are the base of large area flexible microelectronics. The thin films transistors were built on silicon oxide but other dielectric materials are also suitable. The mobility performance of these transistors, even at this early stage, is an order of magnitude better than amorphous silicon or organic semiconductor transistors. Furthermore, this new type of transistors may considerably improve the sensitivity of ANI's carbon nanotube based sensor technology, with the transistors providing intrinsic amplification of the sensor detection signals.

"Our strategy of finding immediate and realistic applications of nanotechnology is illustrated by demonstrating the excellent properties of single wall carbon nanotubes, using current microlectronic processes, for today's markets needs," said Dr. Zvi Yaniv, President and CEO of Applied Nanotech, Inc.

"This achievement is the result of the expertise that we have gained over the years in developing processes for controlling the electron emission from carbon nanotubes," added Mr. Marc Eller, Chief Executive Officer of Nano-Proprietary, Inc.
