Circuits on Demand: Engineer Prints Electrical Components on Paper

One of humankind’s biggest technological steps was the ability to print words on paper.

Now, thanks to College of Engineering assistant professor Anming Hu, it’s technology itself that is being printed.

Hu, of the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace, and Biomedical Engineering, has researched a way to print circuits on paper, the main impact of which could be a decrease in cost and an increase in portability for any number of devices.

“Being able to design the circuit you want and then print it out allows for more responsive designs, easier control, and lower costs,” said Hu. “The ability to print out the exact circuit you need the moment you need it can revolutionize a number of things.”
