The article, Piezo-Phototronic LEDs May Help Robots Feel, published 8th August in EE Times, reveals that the project was fronted by piezo-electric expert Zheng Lin Wang, professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology. If successful, the concept could be used for inkless fingerprint scanners, biological imaging and to enhance the performance of micro-electro mechanical systems (MEMS). During the recent demonstration, Wang and his team grew 2.7 micron diameter zinc-oxide nanowires into arrays that were able to sense touch with a resolution of 6,300 dots per inch and a switching time of 90 milliseconds.
