Title: Plastic Nano-Structured Electronics for the Internet of Everything
Abstract: In silicon microelectronics the ability to downscale critical dimensions of its building block, the transistor, has proven extremely successful over the past sixty years in increasing its performance and as a result, the computational power of modern microprocessors. These extraordinary developments have been achieved through a virtuous circle of scientific and engineering breakthroughs which have led to the proliferation of information and communication technologies with an extraordinary impact on our daily life and society. However, adopting silicon’s approach of scaling to emerging technologies such as printed large-area electronics, has proven challenging both in terms of technology and economics. This talk will focus on progress being made downscaling emerging forms of electronics through new materials and fabrication paradigms and their application in the ever expanding ecosystem of The Internet of Everything.
