Class Expectations

Flexible electronics holds the promise of transformative developments in: (1) flat panel lighting (low cost, low energy), (2) energy production systems (solar) and 3) infrastructure control and monitoring (sensing, energy control, hazard monitoring). Practical realization of flexible circuits will require dramatic progress in new materials that are compatible with flexible media and amenable to facile and low temperature processing as well as major advances in manufacturing technologies such as roll-to-roll processing. This course will discuss these and other developments.

There will be problem sets approximately every two weeks.

There will be a class prelim.

There is NO FINAL, but there is a term paper due during study week. The topic will be selected in conjunction with the course instructor.
