Presentation Summary

This talk presents a promising solution to realize stretchable hybrid electronic systems that not only involve sensors and displays but also address the capability of in-system data processing and computation in a stretchable form. Key technologies rely on the complete printability of stretchable platforms, stretchable interconnects, and device assemblies. This printing-based approach enables practical integration of stretchable electronics into several research fields.

Company Profile (Seoul National University)

Seoul National University logo
The research field of the Hong's group in Seoul National University covers fabrication, analysis, and application of thin-film devices, sensors, circuits, and integrated systems with flexible and stretchable forms. The recent aim of this group focuses on developing technologies for highly integrated and high-performance stretchable electronic systems using versatile printing techniques. This enables fully printable, system-level soft electronics for practical data processing and computing with advanced capabilities of universal circuit design and multilayer device integration. This design and integration tool provides a new layout of skin/bio-interfacing applications and further extends an applicable field of stretchable electronics.
