Prof. Renee Zhao et al report a design strategy for snap-folding hexagonal rings that can be folded to 1.5% and 0.4% of initial area and volume, respectively, for future applications as stints, novel medical devices, and soft robotics.
Prof. Todd Coleman et al describe a methodology that can be used to optimize the impedance characteristics of electrodes and can be applied to the design of other stretchable electronics for different target frequencies, materials and electrode sizes.
Prof. Reinhold Dauskardt et al determined that for film used as an anti-fingerprint coating on touchscreen displays, humidity and other field operating conditions affect film properties making optimal cross-linking characteristics less certain, as well as the precursor chemistry to achieve them.
Prof. Zhenan Bao, Prof. Xiaoke Chen et al describe a stretchable, neurochemical biological interface termed NeuroString that enables in vivo real-time, monoamine sensing in the brain, as well as measuring serotonin dynamics in the gut without disturbing peristaltic movement.
Prof. Zhenan Bao, Prof. Reinhold Dauskardt et al report a material design strategy and fabrication processes to achieve stretchable all-polymer-based light-emitting diodes colored red, green and blue that are wirelessly powered while worn and display real-time pulse signals.
Prof. Zhenan Bao, Prof. David Myung, Prof. Sei Kwang Hahn et al demonstrate that smart contact lenses can accurately monitor changing blood glucose levels in diabetic and normal rabbits, and they evaluate the clinical feasibility and safety of the smart contact lenses for the human eye.
Prof. Mark Brongersma et al demonstrate a metasurface patterned on a regular pair of eyeglasses providing an unperturbed view of the world across the visible spectrum while redirecting near-infrared light to a camera, which allows imaging of the eye.
