Electronics & Energy


Nanotechnology applications in the electronics and energy industry sector revolve around developments in the integrated circuit, sensor and energy storage and generation intermediate sectors of the value chain. Final products are primarily in the consumer electronics and computers, followed by the transportation and construction/industrial markets. Current nano-related developments in the electronics industry are closely related to semiconductor equipment developments related to lithography and the ability to fabricate nanoscale features. Future developments are concerned with using various nanoscale materials to replace or enhance how semiconductors operate.
