Description

The first comprehensive look at the emergence of paper as a highly enabling material for a broad range of applications.
With the chapters contributed by leading technologists, scientists, and engineers, the book begins by discussing the physical properties and varieties of papers, including the intrinsic microfluidic properties. It then goes on to describe paper as a functional material for a number of applications in life science and health diagnostics, as well as for electronic devices and circuits in different applications and environments, such as flexible displays and solar cells. The authors conclude with a discussion of future technological advances and applications.
An invaluable reference suitable for a wide audience, ranging from material developers to fluid mechanics engineers, and from academic researchers to industrial developers.
