New Technique Makes Smart CLs More Feasible

"A new way of making ultrathin, flexible and transparent electronics has been unveiled by researchers in Switzerland," reports Physics World. "The technique involves fabricating micron-thick electronic devices on a conventional silicon wafer, which is later detached by soaking it in water. The free-floating devices can then be placed onto a variety of biological tissues, including human skin and even a single hair. The technology could be used to make "smart" contact lenses for monitoring the pressure in an eyeball or for creating flexible solar cells." Read more.
