    GLEN ALLEN, Va., Jan. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- NanoMarkets, a leading industry
 analyst firm based here, has released both a preview and a first chapter from
 its upcoming report, "The New Thin Film Electronics: Large Area Electronics
 and Beyond".  This new NanoMarkets report will be released in mid-February.
 To access both the article and the chapter, interested persons may visit the

     About the Report:
     According to NanoMarkets, the latest thin-film technology is creating new
 revenue opportunities for the electronics and semiconductor industries, the
 most exciting in "large area electronics," which addresses novel applications
 in displays, photovoltaics, lighting, sensor arrays and other markets where
 there are benefits to creating circuitry over areas measured in terms of
 several square feet.  At the other end of the scale, thin-film technology is
 critical to the prospects for extending CMOS chips to smaller nodes, as well
 as to creating new kinds of memory and storage devices. Additional
 opportunities for thin-film technologies in batteries, imaging and
 military/aerospace are also emerging.
     This report analyzes and quantifies key application segments and shows
 that there are considerable synergies between them, creating paths for firms
 in one thin-film enabled segment to diversify into another. The report also
 examines the latest generation of production technology for thin film
 (including atomic layer deposition, ink-jet and self-assembly), as well as how
 nanotechnology is creating new kinds of thin-film materials for use in
 electronics.  In addition, this new NanoMarkets offering identifies today's
 main players in thin-film electronics and provides eight-year forecasts of all
 thin-film electronics applications.
     The core focus of this report will be to quantify and analyze the impact
 of these technology trends, and to discuss their consequences. It will be
 vital reading for firms in the display business seeking to broaden their
 product range into new areas of large area electronics, and for other
 electronics firms that need to understand how the budding field of large area
 electronics will produce new revenues for them. Others that will benefit from
 this report will be semiconductor firms seeking to gain insight into how thin-
 film technology is enabling next-generation chips; disk drive and memory firms
 with an interest in how the latest TF materials are improving the prospects
 for information storage and energy companies examining some of the latest
 directions for batteries and photovoltaics.
