Armour College of Engineering's Biomedical Engineering Department will host a seminar featuring John A. Rogers, Louis Simpson and Kimberly Querrey Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Neurological Surgery at Northwestern University on March 24, 2017. Lecture topic will be Soft, Body-Integrated Electronics.


Biology is soft and curvilinear; semiconductor devices are not. Electronic and optoelectronic systems that eliminate this profound mismatch in properties create opportunities for devices that can intimately integrate with the body, for diagnostic, therapeutic or surgical function with important, unique capabilities in biomedical research and clinical healthcare. Over the last decade, a convergence of new concepts in mechanical engineering, materials science, electrical engineering and advanced manufacturing has led to the emergence of diverse, novel classes of 'biocompatible' electronic platforms. This talk describes the key ideas, with examples in wireless, skin-like electronic 'tattoos' for continuous monitoring of physiological health.
