CANCELLED Prof. Francisco Molina-Lopez on "Flexible and Printed Organic/Inorganic Electronics"

16.03.2020 (Monday) , 13:00 - 15:00



cfaed Seminar Series continues with a new guest speaker from the Department of Materials Engineering of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium: Prof. Francisco Molina-Lopez will talk about "Flexible and Printed Organic/Inorganic Electronics". The talk will take place on March 16, 2020, at TU Dresden, Krone-Bau, 1.11 Nöthnitzer Str. 64, 01187 Dresden at 13:00 o'clock. Everybody is welcome!

For more information on the topic, consider the abstract below:

 Rigid and brittle traditional electronics struggles to address the needs of emerging technologies, such as smart textiles or skin electronics, where high computational power is no longer the main requirement. Instead, these fields demand electronics with unconventional form factors such as large-area or 3D shape, and mechanical flexibility/stretchability to conform to curved and moving surfaces. Other novel applications like large sensors networks for the internet of things (IoT) prioritize highly distributed systems over the high integration of traditional electronics. In both scenarios, ultra-low fabrication cost might be a requirement too. Printing can answer to those demands by offering a material-efficient and scalable means to develop flexible electronics. In this talk, I will give a general overview of my work in the fabrication and characterization of printed and flexible/stretchable electronics. I will describe the process and materials (inorganic and organic) used to realize inkjet-printed sensors for RFID tags, stretchable transistors and solution-sheared aligned organic semiconductors. Finally, my recent efforts in 3D laser printing of inorganic thermoelectrics will be presented.
