Tomás Palacios explores the application of novel materials in next-generation electronics to save energy and expand possibilities.
Nearly everyone seems to carry a cell phone or tablet. But if Tomás Palacios’s vision of the future of electronics comes to bear, it will be increasingly difficult to separate electronics from all the other structures and materials surrounding us. An electrical engineer by training, Palacios, MIT Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, develops new materials to bring electronic devices to the next level and beyond. “We are always trying to mix materials, engineering and physics to create a prototype device that can get people excited about new applications and opportunities,” he says.
