New Peptides and Proteins Study Findings Have Been Reported by Researchers at Indian Institute of Technology (Flexible and transparent nanocrystal floating gate memory devices using silk protein)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Researchers detail new data in Proteins. According to news reporting out of Kharagpur, India, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "The charge storage behavior of a floating gate memory device using carbon nanotube-CdS nanostructures embedded in Bombyx mori silk protein matrix has been demonstrated. The capacitance - voltage characteristics in ITO/CNT-CdS-silk composite/Al device exhibits a clockwise hysteresis behavior due to the injection and storage of holes in the quantized valence band energy levels of CdS nanocrystals."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the Indian Institute of Technology, "The enhanced charge injection resulting in increase in memory window is observed at higher sweeping voltages. Nearly frequency independent hysteresis width over a wide range of 100 kHz-2.0 MHz, indicates its origin due to the charge storage in nanocrystals."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The memory behavior of carbon nanotube-CdS nanostructures/silk nanocomposite devices has also been demonstrated on polyethylene terephthalate substrates, which may provide the way for flexible, transparent and printable electronic devices."
