|Penn Engineers Develop First Transistors Made Entirely of Nanocrystal 'Inks'|
In a study led by Cherie Kagan, Stephen J. Angello Professor in Electrical and Systems Engineering, Penn engineers have shown a new approach for making transistor fabrication devices: sequentially depositing their components in the form of liquid nanocrystal "inks." Their new study opens the door for electrical components to be built into flexible or wearable applications.
