Young chemical engineer on cutting edge of organic polymer-based electronics
For most people, a little girl with a lollipop isn't what comes to mind when thinking of a future scientist. When she was just 4 years old, however, Zhenan Bao was conducting her first science experiment at a park in her hometown of Nanjing, China.
Along with her work on flexible electronics, Bao's group at Stanford is studying polymer-based solar cells, carbon nanotube-based electronics and single-molecule nanoelectronics. She also has started a research collaboration with her husband, Jeff Tok, a biologist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, on DNA-templated nanoelectronics. Her latest study, which appeared in the March 8 issue of the Journal of the American Chemical Society, describes a stamping technique to make thin-film transistors with complex patterns.
