Integrated circuits having interconnects and heat dissipators based on nanostructures

The present inven­tion relates to a heat dis­si­pa­tor that includes a con­duc­tive sub­strate and a plu­ral­i­ty of nanos­truc­tures sup­port­ed by the con­duc­tive sub­strate. The nanos­truc­tures are at least part­ly embed­ded in an insu­la­tor. Each of the nanos­truc­tures includes a plu­ral­i­ty of inter­me­di­ate lay­ers on the con­duc­tive sub­strate. At least two of the plu­ral­i­ty of inter­me­di­ate lay­ers are inter­dif­fused, and mate­r­i­al of the at least two of the plu­ral­i­ty of inter­me­di­ate lay­ers that are inter­dif­fused is present in the nanostructure.

Smoltek—from carbon nanofibers to mind-controlled robotic prostheses

Smoltek holds unique world patents for technologies that make material engineering on an atomic level possible. Smoltek has solutions that allow continued miniaturization and increased performance of semiconductors, contribute to carbon-free steel production and renewable energy storage, and enable mind control of robotic prostheses. This is a story of how Smoltek came to be.

Carbon nanofibers (CNFs)

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...

Miniaturized capacitors with carbon nanofibers

Smoltek has devel­oped the world’s thinnest dis­crete capac­i­tor. Its total build­ing height is less than thir­ty microm­e­ters (30 µm). You have to stack ten of them on top of each oth­er to reach the same height as today’s indus­try-stan­dard when it comes to sur­face-mount­ed capac­i­tors. The capac­i­tor itself, with­out encap­su­la­tion, is a mere 0.5 to 10 µm. It...
