Nanoparticle Technology Self-Assembles into Transparent, Conductive Film
Cima NanoTech of St. Paul, MN develops next-generation transparent conductive films; their SANTE® Technology is a nanoparticle dispersion that self-assembles into a random mesh-like network pattern when coated onto substrates, enabling transparent conductors. The silver nanoparticle technology can be transferred to various substrates such as polycarbonate, acrylic, polypropylene, glass, and semiconductor materials. SANTE® Technology can be used for applications such as electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding, touch, transparent heating, photovoltaic, flexible electronics, and OLED lighting. This video demonstration shows how SANTE® Technology self-assembles into a transparent conductive nanoparticle network.
