Researchers Develop Self-assembling Highly Conductive Plastic Nanofibers

3:17 AM MDT | April 27, 2012 | Alex Scott

In a development that meets the need of the electronic industry to develop ever smaller devices, researchers at Charles Sadron Institute (CNRS; Strasbourg, France) and the Université de Strasbourg (Strasbourg) have developed highly conductive plastic nanofibers which ‘self assemble’ in the present of a flash of light. The fibers are made from chemically modified triarylamines. The research to test the conductivity of the fibers involved sandwiching the fibers in between gold electrodes and then applying an electric current between the...
