Large-Area Flexible Bio Electronics: from materials to emerging applications (9h)  

Large-area flexible electronics can enable the emerging Internet of Everything applications where people, processes, data and devices will be integrated and connected, to augment quality of life. Using flexible substrates in combination with emerging organic and metal-oxides materials, significant progress has been made and nowadays low-cost flexible circuits, smart sensors and biomedical devices are available.
The goal of the course is to provide an overview of organic and metal-oxide materials, devices and fabrication technologies used for integrated large-area circuits, flexible sensors and bio-electronics.
