Invited speakers set the stage for each of the 26 Sessions at 2016FLEX. The presentations highlight just some of the many advancements being made in the flexible, printed and hybrid electronics sector. Here are a few of the highlights from the upcoming conference:

 

Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Laboratory – Computational Modeling of Stability and Concentration Evolution of Biomarkers in Sweat
Key insights will be presented from modeling of the time evolution of the concentration of biomarkers under various processing and environmental conditions and the implications for sweat based biomarker monitoring. This information is fundamental to designing sensor patches with appropriate sensitivity and methods of developing processing chemistry to retain biomarker concentration levels to meet the sensor’s sensitivity.

Stanford University, Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics – Building Self-diagnostic Fly-by-feel Vehicles with Stretchable, Flexible Sensors and Electronics Network
This paper demonstrates the feasibility and deployment of innovative bio-inspired flexible, stretchable sensors/actuators/electronics networks that can be conformed and configured for “intelligent” aerospace systems and integrated directly into the airfoil surface.

 

Holst Centre – Constraints and Possibilities for Direct Printing of Stretchable Electronics on Thermoplastic Polymers
This presentation explains and demonstrates the constraints for direct printing of stretchable electronic pastes on TPU. Various stretchable pastes applied by screen printing of conductive structures in a flat-bed setup will be presented and the approach in compensating intrinsic shrink, strain-hardening and re-orientation of the polymeric chains upon printing will be discussed.

 

Creating a Thin-film Electronics Roadmap for Flexible-Hybrid Systems – Princeton University
This talk identifies a representative set of platform functionalities required by flexible/large-area electronics and then demonstrate the system-level impacts of technological innovations can be evaluated and projected, and shows that key technological parameters can easily be overlooked without a strong system-level perspective, including: self-powered strain-sensing for structural monitoring; distributed radio frontends for sensor telemetry; and extended-range capacitance sensing for gestural interfaces to ambient electronics.

Printed Electronics Research for RF/Microwave Applications at the Raytheon-UMass Lowell Research Institute – University of Massachusetts Lowell
This talk will describe the development and adoption of additive technologies for the production of RF/microwave electronics and the need for rapid prototyping and the production of RF systems that are flexible, lightweight, conformable and wearable.
