Past Professor

John Rogers

CAS Professor of Materials Science & Engineering

Professor Rogers’ work seeks to understand and exploit interesting characteristics of ‘soft’ materials such as polymers, liquid crystals, and biological tissues as well as hybrid combinations of them with unusual classes of micro/nanomaterials in the form of ribbons, wires, membranes, or tubes. These efforts are highly multidisciplinary and combine expertise from nearly every traditional field of technical study in a blend that spans fundamental science to system engineering. Recent emphasis is on bio-integrated devices and bio-inspired design. Examples include injectable cellular-scale optoelectronics, ‘insect eye’ digital imagers, and biodegradable forms of electronics.
