Dec. 16, MIT Technology Review: Printing the electronics in sophisticated radar systems onto sheets of plastic would make the systems both cheaper and more versatile. This would have obvious military benefits but also many potential civilian applications, such as weather-monitoring radar and self-driving vehicles. One major challenge in printing electronics capable of dealing with high-frequency radio waves is developing novel “inks” with the right electrical properties.

Researchers at a Raytheon-sponsored lab at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, say they have a solution.
