Latest News at Canatu
Canatu's innovations are in new carbon nanomaterials, new production methods for synthesis of carbon nanomaterials and new nanomaterial based component manufacturing methods and a wide range of nanocarbon-based energy, electrical and optical components. Combined, these patented technologies have the potential to revolutionize industries by enabling new kinds of printed flexible electronics which also dramatically reduce production costs and the environmental impact.
Specifically, Canatu is commercializing:
- a novel carbon nanomaterial, NanoBud®, with unique properties, wide ranging applications and the potential to replace and surpass many common conductive and semiconductive materials now used in electronics and optics,
- a novel material synthesis and production technology, Direct Dry Printing®, with the potential to replace many of today's expensive production processes with cheap Roll-to-Roll alternatives, and
- targeted NanoBud® based components and devices made with our materials, processes and films
Our first in-house developed products are customized projected capacitive touch sensors.
Canatu is also developing a unique touch sensor method, CanaTouch™, which takes advantage of the unique properties of our material and allows both touch and deformation based input on bendable and complex curved surfaces. CanaTouch™ employs Canatu's materials, Canatu's film and material production processes, as well as Canatu's novel touch principle, architecture and algorithm. Prototypes of this sensor are available in both flexible two-dimensional and curved three-dimensional forms.
