Novel CU-Boulder Technique Shrinks Size of Nanotechnology Circuitry
April 16, 2009
A University of Colorado at Boulder team has developed a new method of shrinking the size of circuitry used in nanotechnology devices like computer chips and solar cells, by using two separate colors of light--one to inscribe patterns, the other to erase their edges to create smaller structures.
