Creating flexible electronic devices

06 March, 2006

Researchers have developed a new process to make flexible, conducting ‘nano skins’ for a variety of applications, from electronic paper to sensors for detecting chemical and biological agents. The materials, which are described in the March issue of the journal Nano Letters, combine the strength and conductivity of carbon nanotubes with the flexibility of traditional polymers.
