Piezo-phototronic LEDs

Piezo-phototronic LEDs

Researchers have developed a sensor device that converts mechanical pressure – from a signature or a fingerprint – directly into light signals that can be captured and processed optically. Shown are Professor Zhong Lin Wang of the Georgia Institute of Technology and members of his research team. (Georgia Tech Photo: Gary Meek)
