Plastic Electronics

Abstract:
It may be Hollywood's most famous one-word line: "Plastics." Since Dustin Hoffman's character ignored that career advice in the 1967 hit The Graduate, plastics have become the most prevalent material in offices and homes. And now, plastics are set to pull off a sequel -- in electronics. Don't look for plastic chips to be used for heavy-duty computing chores anytime soon, but they could rival silicon sometime in the 2010s.
