Transparent Transistors, Printed On Paper
To make light-weight, inexpensive electronics using renewable materials, scientists have turned to a technology that is almost 2,000 years old: paper. In an important step toward paper-based devices, researchers report fabricating transistors on transparent, exceptionally smooth paper (ACS Nano, DOI: 10.1021/nn304407r).
Over the past five years, materials scientists have made electronic devices such as batteries and light-emitting diodes from paper. In . . .
