Electronics makers seem determined to connect more and more objects to the internet. But if they’re going to cover urban infrastructure, the environment, and even our bodies with electronic sensors, they also need to think about the expense and environmental impacts of these devices, says Deji Akinwande, an electrical engineer at the University of Texas, Austin.

To address this, Akinwande wanted to make a key component for flexible electronics—radiofrequency transistors needed . . .
