Fabrication involves manufacturing or developing processes to make electronic products and other related components. The fabrication process is usually complicated and costly, now there is hope that nanotechnology in electronics can help lower cost.
However, the demand for electronic devices continues to grow to imply the need for improved methods of development.
Against this background, the researchers at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) have discovered a new fabricating process in the production of semiconductors. The fabrication process is efficient, and it also has many other benefits.
Apart from silicon, there are also other materials that are useful in the development of semiconductors. These materials can also improve the performance of various electronic devices.
The new fabrication method is called I-MacEtch also known as the inverse metal-assisted chemical etching process. The new method comes against the background of rising demand for … Read more
Copying the nanostructure of butterfly wings can make today’s best thermal imagers far less expensive. Nanotechnology aims to duplicate what nature does, and this bio-inspired technology can significantly lower the cost of manufacturing vital gadgets.
GE Global Researchers view nature as inspirational in their recent work involving the development of better thermal imaging. The technique of thermal imaging significantly applies to a wide range of environments and industries. Currently, infrared detectors that are commonly in use are very expensive, but they play crucial roles.
The research by GE Global Researchers published in the journal Nature Photonics was inspired by the designs of iridescence Morpho butterfly scales. This study was about low-thermal-mass resonators. In this study, the experiment involved smearing the scales of the Morpho butterfly consisting of changing colors with single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs).
When the researchers blew the butterfly … Read more
Nano-technology is an essential branch of modern science and electronics. The more we learn about the potential of this technology, using different nanoparticles to form new materials and offer advances in home robots, the more usable and interesting it becomes for the everyday person and household.
Nano-technologies in home robots are used for many things like our smaller and faster computers, robotic vacuum cleaner models, smart home hubs, smaller sleeker smartphones with more features, and better photo cameras.
It is so perfectly intertwined in the modern world that users are unaware of its true reach.
It has countless military and medical applications that revolutionize surgery and warfare. Nano-technology isn’t all about high-end developments in military and medical applications. Many of the best inventions and applications are in more accessible technology.
Thin, strong layers of materials can enhance the durability of … Read more
