Meaghan's Minute: Doping Carbon Filaments
Today on Meaghan's Minute, brought to you by Memory Protection Devices, a team of Stanford engineers have developed a process to 'dope' carbon filaments with an additive to improve their electronic performance so they can tolerate power fluctuations in much the same way as silicon circuitry, paving the way for digital devices that bend.
The improved process for making flexible circuits uses carbon nanotube transistors, or CNTs, which have the physical strength to take the wear and tear of bending and the electrical conductivity to perform any electronic task.
