Plastic electronics - inventing the future
Yueh-Lin "Lynn" Loo is a researcher in plastic electronics, a young and growing field that can potentially change the quality of human life in a wide range of ways. "Imagine tinted windows that can also generate power during the day," says the professor of chemical and biological engineering. "Imagine disposable sensors that would change color if the water source is contaminated, or yet, think of smart plastic patches that can monitor your health and deliver medication when you're sick. The possibilities are endless."
