GRC on Colloidal Semiconductor Nanocrystals

July 21, 2014 - 2:17pm
July 20, 2014 - In its relatively short lifetime, research in field of colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals has clarified and revealed new concepts and mechanisms in photophysics, electronic structure, magnetism, interfacial chemistry, redox chemistry, charge transport, crystal nucleation and growth, and self-assembly, and has introduced new approaches to energy harvesting and conversion, electronics, catalysis, chemical and biological sensing, and biological imaging. The quantum dot field is growing rapidly and in many different directions. We created this new GRC to celebrate, compile, and push forward research in this complex interdisciplinary field.

FlexTech Alliance Workshop: Flexible Hybrid Electronics for Wearable Applications Challenges and Solutions

June 10, 2014 - 1:39pm
July 10, 2014 - Flexible hybrid electronics (FHE) draws equipment, materials, design and manufacturing processes from two industries: the semiconductor industry and the traditional printing industry. FlexTech Alliance explores this interesting technology merger in a one-day workshop at SEMICON West 2014. One of the fastest growing applications for Flexible Hybrid Electronics is wearable electronic devices for health and human performance monitoring. This workshop will include a review of some of these applications. The semiconductor industry has evolved not only exponentially in terms of capability, but also in the applications it pursues. A recent direction is referred to as More Than Moore. Activity in this space seeks to address needs for more capability for wearable/flexible/conformal systems (even implantable), large size/distributed systems, and low cost (even disposable) sensor and smart packaging systems. Recently, printed electronics has made great progress in materials and processing technologies for flexible, conformable and robust applications such as wearable biomedical sensors and imagers, displays, consumer packaging, and toxic and structural sensors. Almost simultaneously, various techniques are emerging for creating very thin silicon chips and packages as well as flexible PC boards that can be incorporated in flexible systems. Finding ways to cost effectively and reliably integrate conventional processors, MEMS sensors, and high speed RF communications with printed/flexible electronics systems opens the door to wider applications, including wearables. Where do printed/flexible electronics systems offer the best solutions? Where could integrating traditional silicon into a flexible electronics format make most sense for cost or performance? What are the industry-wide challenges and promising solutions for process integration, handling, packaging, and testing hybrid silicon and flexible approaches? Join with subject matter experts and end users to answer these and other pertinent questions.
