WIN/IEEE EPS Seminar: Tse Nga Tina Ng

Thursday, September 14, 2023 2:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT (GMT -04:00)

Flexible Electronics To See Deeper and Feel Better

The Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology (WIN) is pleased to present a seminar with Tse Nga Tina Ng, Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at the University of California San Diego, USA. 

This seminar is titled "Flexible Electronics To See Deeper and Feel Better" and will be held on Thursday, September 14, 2023 at 2:00 PM in QNC 1501. Registration is required!


Printing with solution-processable materials is a versatile approach that can lead to devices that are economical and easily reconfigurable. Here we present the design and additive processing of polymeric materials to achieve optoelectronics and soft sensors for human-computer interfaces. We will discuss three example use cases, including sensors for infrared imaging that enable deeper penetration depth, a biomechanical tool for motor disorder diagnosis, and structural supercapacitors for energy storage. The presentation aims to summarize the key challenges and future opportunities of integrating polymer electronics in human-computer interfaces for various remote sensing applications such as in telemedicine and internet-of-things sensor networks.
