Nanography refers to the application of nanotechnology to the digital printing process. This technology was developed and patented by Landa Corporation (Rehovot, Israel). Nanography uses carbon nanotubes and other nanoscale materials to enhance print results.
Scientists define nanotechnology as the treatment of materials at the atomic or molecular levels, which are measured in nanometers (nm); typically, items below 100 nm are considered nanoscale. These items include carbon nanotubes made of graphene, as well as very thin nanowires that can conduct electrical charges.
In nanography, microscopic droplets called nanoink are spread, sprayed or dropped onto an "image conveyer blanket" that is heated. The droplets essentially melt, dispersing liquid and bonding to the page. This provides a very high quality print result.
