Cima Nanotech, which has been working with Japan giant Toray Industries, said that it is preparing to launch production of its self-aligning nanotechnology films.

Cima Nanotech, a six-year-old startup that has developed next-generation transparent conductive coating material, has been working with Toray for three years to commercialize its self-aligning technology. Cima's patented technologies aim to allow silver nanoparticles to self-assemble into transparent film coatings. The company claims its thin films provide better electronic resistance and flexibility than current technologies like indium tin oxide-based coatings.

'Cleaner, greener' than lithography
The companies are targeting the display and solar cell markets. Other applications include EMI filters.

"Our technology is cleaner and greener than lithography," Eric Granstrom, Cima's VP of R&D, claimed in a statement.
