FED-TVs With Carbon Nanotube Technology Could Supersede Plasma and LCD Flat Screens

SpecialChem / Dec 20, 2007

Conductive and field emission properties of single and multi-walled carbon nanotubes. Just as silicon is the wonder material for the computer age, carbon nanotubes will most likely be the materials responsible for the next evolutionary step in electronics and computing. Their extraordinary properties have identified them as having the potential to revolutionise many technologies. In particular, it is widely believed that carbon nanotubes will take electronic devices to the next level. Many people expect the hugely popular LCD and plasma screens of today to be replaced by field emission flat screen displays (FED-TV). FED-TV's take all the best aspects of CRT's, LCD's and plasma TV's and roll them into a single package. While the technology exists, manufacturers are at present unable to compete with LCD's and plasma displays on a cost basis. However, carbon nanotubes have the ability to change all that.In order to incorporate carbon nanotubes into devices like these field emission flat screen displays, an intimate knowledge of the properties of various forms of carbon nanotubes is invaluable.
