Large-Area Sensor Networks

Seminar: Solid State Technology and Devices | January 25 | 1-2 p.m. | 521 Cory Hall

Prof. Ali Javey, EECS/UCB

Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

In this talk, development of large-area sensor networks on a skin-like substrate capable of spatial and temporal mapping of a wide range of stimuli is discussed. The enabled electronic-skin (e-skin) presents a new class of smart materials which can be laminated on virtually any object while providing user interfacing with the external ambient at an unprecedented scale. The stimuli could include pressure (e.g., touch), temperature, strain (e.g., crack formation), light (imaging), and more. Recent advancements in semiconductor materials with unusual form factors, device architectures, and process technologies needed for obtaining the envisioned system will be discussed. Specifically, an example e-skin prototype with fully integrated electronic device components, tactile sensors and OLED display will be presented. Future incorporation of wireless components and energy sources will also be discussed., 510-642-2911
