Kaist research team develops new nano-printing technology

A Korean research team has developed the world’s first nano-printing technology that can print a set of almost-invisible layers and transplant them onto any flexible or curved objects, including human skin.

The nano structure consists of thin layers of microelectronic materials sized at just 10 nanometers, which is as thin as one-ten thousandth of a human hair strand. Jung Yeon-sik, associate professor of materials science at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (Kaist), the project’s research leader, explained that this technology will contribute to the mass production of electronic sensors and displays because it can significantly reduce printing costs.

Jung said the technology can be commercialized in chip and sensor factories within next three years. He added that the technology has a promising future as the flexible and wearable mobile device markets are estimated to continue growing.
