Printed Sensors And Interconnects For On-Skin Electronics And Soft Robotics
Estrel Convention Center, Berlin, Germany
15:00 - 15:20
Today, stretchable systems are mainly fabricated in complex and costly vacuum and lithography processes. However, the proposed approach based on low-cost printing processes enables the wider exploitation of the results. This presentation focuses on recent development in printed sensors and interconnects for on-skin electronics and soft-robotics
Professor, Academy of Finland research fellow, Dr. Matti Mäntysalo, is Professor in Electronics materials and manufacturing, Academy of Finland Research Fellow (epidermal electronics), and he has awarded with Adjunct Professor in Digital fabrication. His research interests include printed electronics materials, fabrication processes, pre- and post-treatments, reliability and failure analyses, and especially stretchable and wearable electronics and integration of printed electronics with conventional silicon-based technology (Hybrid Printed Electronics).
Mäntysalo is active member in IEEE Electronic Packaging Society, IEC TC119 Printed electronics standardization, and had been the spokesperson of Hybrid System working group in Organic Electronic Association. He has more than 100 peer reviewed scientific journal and conference publications.
Tampere University of Technology (TUT) conducts scientific research in technology and architecture and provides the highest education within these fields. Since 2010 it has operated in the form of a foundation. At TUT, there are about 10,000 under- and post-graduate students, incl. 1300 international students, and over 160 professors. TUT, with a total annual income of 167 M€, is a research intensive university, a pioneer in technology transfer and an acknowledged cooperation partner among the scientific and business community. Furthermore, TUT has a 50 year track-record in collaborative research with industry. At TUT the share of company funding for research is twice the average of any other Finnish university. For nearly 30 years, TUT has been a shareholder of a company specialized in technology transfer and open innovation promotion.
