Platinum Silicide thin films with tailored properties
Problem: Platinum is highly conductive but it has poor mechanical properties and is not very durable when used in mechanical devices. In the emerging field of nanoelectromechanical (NEM) contact switches, reliability has been identified as a key concern, and to fully enable NEM switches, new materials are needed that can perform well mechanically...

Ultrathin robust plate nanomaterials
Technology Overview: The nano-honeycomb shells have been fabricated from ceramic materials via atomic layer deposition. The thickness can vary between 20 and 70 nm, and the largest single sheet measured 0.5 cm x 1 cm in area, creating sheets of the material at sizes that are visible to the naked eye. Other comparable low-density materials are very...
