The Columbia Laboratory for Unconventional Electronics (CLUE) combines new materials and fabrication techniques to create novel sensors, actuators, and displays that can be large, flexible, non-planar, and grown directly on unusual substrates. We have developed a collection of devices, such as transistors, light-emitting diodes, photodetectors, photovoltaics, batteries, and piezoelectric and ferroelectric elements, which can be easily integrated into complex systems. For example, these devices have been used to build Energy Harvesting Active Networked Tags (EnHANTs), which are small, flexible, and energetically self-reliant devices that can be attached to objects that are not traditionally networked. These tags will provide the infrastructure for novel tracking applications. This talk will provide a brief overview of CLUE and the EnHANTs project and discuss their application to adaptive architecture.
