    Objective. We sought to develop a cervical spinal cord stimulator for the rat that is durable, stable, and does not perturb the underlying spinal cord. Approach. We created a softening spinal cord stimulation (SCS) array ...
  • A Mosquito Inspired Strategy to Implant Microprobes into the Brain 

    Shoffstall, Andrew J.; Srinivasan, Suraj; Willis, Mitchell; Stiller, Allison M.; Ecker, Melanie; Voit, Walter E.; Pancrazio, Joseph J.; Capadona, Jeffrey R. (Nature Publishing Group, 2018-11-05)
    Mosquitos are among the deadliest insects on the planet due to their ability to transmit diseases like malaria through their bite. In order to bite, a mosquito must insert a set of micro-sized needles through the skin to ...
  • Recent Advances in the Science and Engineering of Organic Light-Emitting Diodes 

    Kippelen, B.; Gaj, M. P.; Zhang, X.; Choi, S.; Fuentes-Hernandez, C.; Zhang, Y. D.; Barlow, S.; Marder, S. R.; Voit, Walter E.; Wei, Andrew
    In this talk, we will discuss recent advances in the science and engineering of organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). First, we will focus on materials in which light emission involves the process of thermally activated ...
  • Top-Gate Organic Field-Effect Transistors Fabricated on Shape-Memory Polymer Substrates 

    Choi, Sangmoo; Fuentes-Hernandez, Canek; Wang, Cheng-Yin; Wei, Andrew; Voit, Walter E.; Zhang, Yadong; Barlow, Stephen; Marder, Seth R.; Kippelen, Bernard
    We demonstrate top-gate organic field-effect transistors (OFETs) with a bilayer gate dielectric and doped contacts fabricated on shape-memory polymer (SMP) substrates. SMPs exhibit large variations in Young's modulus ...
