Based on the results of a NEDO project, NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701), the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), and Meijo Nano Carbon Co., Ltd. have successfully established a manufacturing technology for separating semiconducting single-wall carbon nanotubes (CNTs) at high purities above 99% using nonionic dispersant. Meijo Nano Carbon aims to begin marketing semiconducting CNTs from FY2018.
These semiconducting CNTs enable fabrication of large area, ultra-thin and flexible, as well as low cost and high-speed transistors when used for Printed Electronics. Such transistors are expected to be applied to sensor devices that function as IoT elements throughout a wide range of fields, including marketing technologies at convenience stores and supermarkets, as well as medical applications.
