Camera chips get curvy

  August 18/25, 2008}
Compress and stretch the right places in a sheet of silicon and you can make curved camera chips that work like eyes. The curved shape of these optoelectronic devices gives a wider angle of view.

The technique makes it possible to form curved devices using standard manufacturing processes for flat electronics.
