Dry Adhesion and Patterning of Nanomaterials on Tacky Photopolymer
Tech ID: 20588 / UC Case 2005-190-0
Technology DescriptionUsing the Tacky Dot®, UC San Diego researchers have adapted the technology to the patterning of carbon nanotubes, nanowires, and other types of nano-materials. This technology places the nanomaterials on the surface of the photopolymer, sandwiched with other materials or in layers to form a structure of nanomaterial. The dry method removes both the need for the use of a flux, which is found in wet methods, and the need to anneal the surface to fix the nanomaterials in place. The method is capable of producing patterns whose size is just a few microns.
ApplicationsThis method can be used to build products such as sensors, photocatalysts, and other products that require the complicated structuring of nanomaterials.
