S-RUM TECHNOLOGY FOR EXTREME MINIATURIZATION AND INTEGRATION OF PASSIVE ELECTRONICS AND MICROFLUIDICS
University of Texas, Austin, USA
Strain-induced Self-rolled-up membrane (S-RuM) technology is a paradigm-shifting fabrication scheme for extreme miniaturization and integration of passive electronic, photonic and microfluidic components. The overarching physical principle of S-RuM is strain-driven spontaneous deformation of 2D membranes into 3D architectures. In this talk, I will present several examples of S-RuM based applications including inductors, transformers, and L-C filters, as well as microfluidic channels for neuron cell growth acceleration and DNA-based data storage.
TOWARDS FUNCTIONAL METAMATERIALS AND METADEVICES
Boston University, USA
Metamaterials represent a major type of artificially engineered materials with unprecedented material properties in varied engineer domains (electromagnetics, acoustics, and mechanics, among others). In this talk, I will introduce the fundamentals of metamaterials, approaches to integrate microelectromechanical systems (MEMS or microsystems) with metamaterials, functional metamaterial devices from the synergy, and outlooks for metamaterial-enabled (meta)devices.
