Title: “Flexible Electronic Components and Devices”
Abstract: For decades we have considered electronic components and devices as rigid objects. As progress advances in materials, fabrication technologies and device architectures we are beginning to re-evaluate this assumption. It is now possible to fabricate electronics onto flexible substrates, and for the devices and components themselves to be flexible. This talk will introduce a variety of such components and devices, ranging from resistors to photovoltaics, briefly discussing materials, structure and fabrication considerations.
