Cambridge researchers claim plastic #electronics breakthrough.

A breakthrough by researchers at the University of Cambridge's Cavendish Laboratory is being hailed as laying the foundation for the creation of plastic electronic circuits that are fast, flexible and have low power consumption – as well as being cheap and relatively straightforward to produce. Physicists Dr Auke Kronemeijer and Dr Enrico Gili, working in the Cambridge team led by Professor Henning Sirringhaus, have developed a technology based on solution processed organic semiconductors that will find a wide range of applications in everyday life – from radio frequency identification tags on supermarket packaging to transparent displays embedded in car windscreens.
