Presentation Summary

Developments in printed stretchable electronics are a key for realizing health patches and other wearables with superior comfort and signal quality. In this presentation we will discuss new sensor developments for human vital sign monitoring.

Speaker Biography (Peter Zalar)

Peter Zalar obtained his Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) in 2014. His doctoral research focused on the characterization of the optical and electronic properties of novel π-conjugated polymers. He then joined the group of Prof. Takao Someya at The University of Tokyo as a project researcher. In that time he worked on the development of optoelectronic devices based on organic semiconductors for electronic skins and medical monitoring. Since January 2017, he is a Senior Research Scientist at Holst Centre in the group of hybrid and printed electronics, where his research focuses on printed sensors.
