Title: New Materials and Designs for Future Wearable Electronics

Wearable electronics create an intimate connection between humans and devices.  The demand for wearables is growing, with a market predicted to reach $150B annually by 2027. Although today’s smartwatches, fitness trackers, and virtual reality goggles are noticeable and bulky items, the vision for future wearable electronics involves closer integration with humans through the fabrication of new devices that are as soft as the body.  Soft and conformable devices will enable unobtrusive wearable systems that monitor human health, detect disease, sense and record motion, display illumination, and provide a seamless tactile interface with virtual reality systems.  The merging of electronic devices with the human body by combining functional electronic materials with soft elastomeric substrates and textiles will enable devices to be worn on the skin, in the body, or inconspicuously in everyday clothing. This seminar will describe research by the Carmichael Group on new materials and methods for tomorrow’s wearable electronics. The topics to be discussed will include new layered elastomeric systems for soft and conformable electronics, and the development of new E-textiles.
