NanoEngineers Print and Test Chemical Sensors on Elastic Waistbands of Underwear

Chemical sensors printed directly on elastic underwear waistbands retained their sensing abilities even after engineers stretched, folded and pulled at the chemical-sensing printable electrodes -- sensors that could one day be incorporated into intelligent "hospital-on-a-chip" systems. This work, funded by the U.S. Office of Naval Research, is led by professor Joseph Wang, from the Department of NanoEngineering at the University of California, San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering.
