Nanostructure device and method for manufacturing nanostructures

A method for man­u­fac­tur­ing a plu­ral­i­ty of nanos­truc­tures on a sub­strate. The method com­pris­es the steps of: deposit­ing a bot­tom lay­er on an upper sur­face of the sub­strate, the bot­tom lay­er com­pris­ing grains hav­ing a first aver­age grain size; deposit­ing a cat­a­lyst lay­er on an upper sur­face of the bot­tom lay­er, the cat­a­lyst lay­er com­pris­ing grains hav­ing a sec­ond aver­age grain size dif­fer­ent from the first aver­age grain size, there­by form­ing a stack of lay­ers com­pris­ing the bot­tom lay­er and the cat­a­lyst lay­er; heat­ing the stack of lay­ers to a tem­per­a­ture where nanos­truc­tures can form; and pro­vid­ing a gas com­pris­ing a reac­tant such that the reac­tant comes into con­tact with the cat­a­lyst layer.

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.

Compact Energy Storage Interposer

The invention: An interposer device comprising a first conductor pattern on a first side defining a portion of the interposer device to be covered by a first electrical circuit element; and a second conductor pattern on a second side to be connected to a second electrical circuit element. The second conductor pattern is electrically coupled to the first conductor pattern. The interposer device further comprises a plurality of nanostructure energy storage devices arranged within the portion of the interposer device to be covered by the first electrical circuit element. Each of the nanostructure energy storage devices comprises at least a first plurality of conductive nanostructures; a conduction controlling material embedding the 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.

Helplayer IP-family expands with new granted patent
