Carbon nanofibers is a supermaterial. It is stronger, more elastic, and lighter than steel. It conducts heat and electricity better than metals. And it can be used to thousandfold the surface of materials. Let’s take a closer look at these tiny fellows. What is a carbon nanofiber (CNF)? A carbon nanofiber (CNF) is a carbon-made material so thin that...

This is the third and last article in a series of three in which Smoltek founder and strategic advisor Shafiq Kabir share his personal thoughts on nanotechnology opportunities. In the previous two articles, he has addressed both the hype and the reality of carbon nanotechnology. In this last article, he looks into the future. He discusses how carbon nanotechnology will unleash the power of the internet of everything.
The invention: An interposer device comprising an interposer substrate; a plurality of conducting vias extending through the interposer substrate; a conductor pattern on the interposer substrate, and a nanostructure energy storage device. The nanostructure energy storage device comprises at least a first plurality of conductive nanostructures formed on the interposer substrate; a conduction controlling material embedding each nanostructure in the first plurality of conductive nanostructures; a first electrode connected to each nanostructure in the first plurality of nanostructures; and a second electrode separated from each nanostructure in the first plurality of nanostructures by the conduction controlling material, wherein the first electrode and the second electrode are configured to allow electrical connection of the nanostructure energy storage device to the integrated circuit.
