Scientists develop nano-based alternative for rare-earth minerals

04/14/2011 | EE Times

Nanotechnology scientists are trying to find substitutes for rare-earth materials as China moves to tighten supply. Researchers from the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands have developed a replacement for indium tin oxide -- a crucial material used in electronic displays. Through the use of carbon nanotubes and a latex polymer, the researchers were able to create conductor materials that can replace layers of indium tin oxide.
