报告题目：Materials and Devices for Soft Bio-Integrated Electronics
Research in flexible electronics and bioelectronics has been driven by technological needs, and be tightly integrated with other disciplines to revolutionize future technologies. Future biomedical systems should be capable of continuously measuring and wirelessly transmitting biophysical and biomedical information. To realize such systems, the key point is to call for strategies to bridge clinical needs and material/device engineering. In this talk, I will discuss candidate materials for flexible and biomedical devices, and talk about a novel synthesis route for flexible, high performance, high through-put metal oxide materials. Electronic devices based on these metal oxides synthesized by the novel route exhibit remarkable electrical performance, compatible with conventional fabrication and tolerance of mechanical stress. Combined strategies in materials processing, mechanical design and device construction for architecturally engineered biomedical devices will be discussed. Demonstrations will include a flexible ultra-thin needle-shaped piezoelectric microsystem for cancer biopsies, and flexible 3D microscale devices made from advanced electronic materials for biomechanical measurements. Finally, wireless battery free skin-like electronics for prosthesis control and sensory feedback will be included.
