Flexible Electronics

   

Flexible electronics are circuits and systems that can be bent, folded, stretched or conformed without losing their functionality. These electronics involves a mix of elements such as logic, memory, sensors, batteries, antennas, and various passives which may be printed or assembled on flexible substrates. Combined with low-cost manufacturing processes, and discoveries needed to improve performance and reliability, flexible wearable electronics can present an entirely new paradigm for a wide range of electronics used in health care, consumer, automotive, aerospace, energy, defense, as well as many other applications.

Flexible Wearable Electronics Advanced Research at the Georgia Institute of Technology is a campus-wide, multidisciplinary research, development, manufacturing, educational, and workforce development initiative, involving a large number of a faculty, engineers, graduate and undergraduate students from various schools, colleges, research centers and institutes.  The program members work with other educational institutions, industry, and government agencies developing and implementing new technologies and manufacturing methods for Flexible Wearable  Electronics. They also actively engage in educating and growing a competitive workforce that positively impacts the economic ecosystem in addressing some of the grand challenges associated with food, clean water, health, security, clean energy, and mobility for the sustainable progress of humanity and society.

  • Seeing is Believing - In What You Have Built

    The SENIC Undergraduate Internship in Nanotechnology (SUIN) program is a major component of the Southeastern Nanotechnology Infrastructure Corridor (SENIC), at the Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology at Georgia Tech, that focuses on providing undergraduates in engineering the chance to spend a summer conducting research in a world-class collaborative lab with prominent Georgia Tech researchers. GT-IEN hosted 4 undergraduates from various U.S. colleges over the summer that engaged in hands-on research in a number of fields of nanotechnology.

    Over the next months, IEN will be highlighting the undergraduate participants, their research topics and experience in the labs, as well as what they gained from the program and their time at Georgia Tech, and in Atlanta.
