Top Ten Silicon Nanowire Patents
Volume 3, Issue 1

Silicon nanowires are expected to be incorporated into a range of productsfrom transistors to bone implants to solar cells. In this issue, we highlight ten issued U.S. patents covering silicon nanowires, methods of making nanowires, and nanowire devices. These are patents with seemingly broad claims that, if valid, might be widely infringed by manufacturers of different products incorporating silicon nanowires. This article should not be construed as legal advice; a detailed legal analysis of these patents requires claim construction, review of prosecution history, and infringement analysis under the doctrine of equivalents.
