Research and Markets has added a report titled "Carbon Nanotubes and Graphene for Electronics Applications 2011-2021" to its offering.
Graphene and their compounds and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) feature remarkable electrical properties for organic substances. They are also suitable for a wide range of electrical and electronic systems such as sensors, photovoltaics, semiconductor equipment, conductors, displays, energy conversion devices, and smart textiles. The updated report consolidates all this information by including details of the recent work performed by 100 companies worldwide to information of the latest developments achieved by implementing the technologies. Recent developments, opportunities, and issues related to applications and material manufacture are also mentioned in the report.
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs), based on their chemical arrangement, can be utilized to replace organic or inorganic semiconductors and conductors, but the greatest issue is that CNTs are expensive. But, the price can drop significantly owing to less-costly mass production methods, which are covered in this report.
One of the key uses for CNTs in electronics will be conductors. CNTs are clear, flexible, can be stretched and offers high conductance. They are suitable for a wide range of applications including photovoltaics, touch screens, displays, and display bus bars.
CNTs have shown high mobilities when compared to silicon, resulting in the production of fast switching transistors. In addition, CNTs can be printed and be used in high performing equipment, which can be manufactured using low-cost manufacturing techniques.
CNTs have been incorporated in supercapacitors to bridge the space between capacitors and batteries, thus leveraging the batteries energy density with the power density of transistors and capacitors. This report is essential for those who manufacture or use CNTs, or those developing photovoltaics, displays, energy storage devices, transistors and conductors.
