Breakthrough made in crack-free nanoparticle films

09/27/2012 | Nanowerk

Researchers say that sequentially stacking several nanoparticle film layers instead of creating a single thicker film results in crack-free nanoparticle films. "Our method does not require any added chemicals nor does it require new substrates or new deposition technique/equipment," says Daeyeon Lee of the University of Pennsylvania. "Thus, this new technique is practical and can be used by anyone who is interested in making thick crack-free nanoparticle films."
