Sharp, Nanosys enter mystery display pact

Japanese screen giant Sharp and Nanosys, the PhD-heavy nanotech outfit that functions almost like a lab for hire, have inked a pact to develop nanotechnology displays. Some companies, such as Samsung and Applied Nanotech , have been working on monitors in which carbon nanotubes deliver electrons to the screen.

What Nanosys and Sharp are working on, however, is anyone's guess. No other details were disclosed. Nanosys has worked with Sharp on other projects. The company is also working with Mitsubishi on solar cells.
