Smoltek goes beyond Silicon

At the vir­tu­al IEEE NANO 2020 con­fer­ence in Mon­tre­al, Cana­da Smoltek pre­sent­ed that the CNF-MIM capac­i­tor con­cept isn’t restrained to only sil­i­con substrates.

“At this con­fer­ence we showed for the first time in pub­lic that our CNF-MIM can be fab­ri­cat­ed on oth­er sub­strates than Sil­i­con. Demon­strat­ing CNF-MIM on glass and alu­mi­na sub­strates clear­ly widens the poten­tial imple­men­ta­tion and appli­ca­tions of our capac­i­tors,” says Vin­cent Des­maris, CTO at Smoltek.

This was pre­sent­ed in a new tech­ni­cal paper by Smoltek’s R&D‑engineer Elisa Pas­salac­qua in the vir­tu­al pre­sen­ta­tions at the IEEE Nano 2020, held in Mon­tre­al, Cana­da July 29–31.
