Press Release 08-132 - Video
Yonggang Huang describes the new retina-like camera sensor and flexible photosensitive pixels.

Yonggang Huang of Northwestern University describes the new retina-like camera sensor and how a careful study of the properties of materials allowed the team to move beyond the rigid, planar camera chips common in today's digital cameras and instead create a flexible array of photosensitive pixels.
