报告题目：An Additive Manufacturing Approach for Printing 2D and 3D Electronics
报告摘要：Printable electronics have great potential to revolutionize the electronics industry. Various printing methods are adapted to make electronics and electrical devices such as transistors, sensors, OLEDs, RFIDs, displays, solar cells and batteries, on various substrates including both rigid and flexible materials. Recently, an emerging area is to print 3D electronics, building circuits on a 3D structure. This talk will introduce an additive manufacturing approach to make printed 2D and 3D electronics including sensors and RF devices, as well as their applications.
