PARC Forum

Electronics have become increasingly integrated in our daily lives through the invention of devices such as cell phones, Bluetooth headsets, and wearable fitness trackers. As this trend continues and electronics are integrated on the body or in the body, the mechanical properties of electronics become a central issue. This talk will discuss the current state of and our future vision for the applications of compliant electronics, including wearable electronics and biomimetic skin for prosthetic devices.

Presenter(s)

Alex Chortos received his bachelor's degree in Nanotechnology Engineering from the University of Waterloo, during which he did research on electronic materials at Nanyang Technological University and the University of Washington. He is currently finishing his PhD in Materials Engineering with Professor Zhenan Bao at Stanford University. His PhD research has included materials for compliant electronics, sensors for wearable electronics, and systems for prosthetic sensory skin.
