  • Abstract

    We have developed thin stretchable displays that fit snugly on the skins, which show the moving waveform of an electrocardiogram recorded by a breathable, on-skin electrode sensor. The integrated system combines a flexible, deformable display with a lightweight sensor composed of a breathable nanomesh electrode and wireless communication module. The skin display consists of a 16 x 24 array of micro LEDs and stretchable wiring mounted on a rubber sheet. Our skin display exhibits simple graphics with motion. Bbecause it is made from thin and soft materials, it can be deformed freely. The display is stretchable by as much as 45 percent of its original length.

    Presentation Title: Van der Waals heterostructures: techniques, properties, and materials

  • Biography

    James Hone is currently Wang Fong-Jen Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Columbia University, and director of PAS3, Columbia’s Materials Science Research and Engineering Center (MRSEC). He received his BS in physics from Yale in 1990, and PhD in experimental condensed matter physics from UC Berkeley in 1998, and did postdoctoral work at the University of Pennsylvania and Caltech, where he was a Millikan Fellow. He joined the Columbia faculty in 2003. His current research interests include synthesis, characterization, manipulation, and applications graphene, and other 2D materials; nanomechanical devices; and nano-biology.

  • Abstract

    Artificial van der Waals heterostructures of two-dimensional materials offer the possibility of creating layered structures with a wide variety of starting materials and control of composition at the single atomic layer limit. To create such structures, developed a van der Waals transfer technique which largely eliminates interfacial contamination. We have used this technique to encapsulate 2D materials within crystalline h-BN with nearly perfect interfaces, which allows for near-intrinsic behavior in materials such as graphene, transition metal dichalcogenides semiconductors, and 2D superconductors. However, significant challenges toward functional heterostructures remain. This talk will detail our recent progress in the materials engineering for van der Waals heterostructures, including control over disorder, achieving robust electrical contacts, controlling interlayer rotation angle, and improving the quality of the constituent materials.

Plenary Talk VI

  • Prof. James J. Coleman

    The University of Texas at Dallas, USA

    Presentation Title: Periodic Resonant 3D-Confined Semiconductor Quantum Structures

After working at Bell Laboratories, Murray Hill, NJ, and Rockwell International, Anaheim, CA, he returned to the University of Illinois as professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering where he held the Intel Alumni Endowed Chair. He and his students made contributions to the design, performance, and reliability of 980 nm strained-layer InGaAs lasers. They were also involved in developing high performance narrow diode lasers and other photonic devices by selective-area epitaxy, and the growth processes for quantum confined laser structures. In 2013, he joined the University of Texas at Dallas.

    Professor Coleman has published more than 600 journal publications and conference presentations and 13 book chapters. He has 10 US patents and has given more than 100 invited presentations.

He is a member of the US National Academy of Engineering and a Fellow of the IEEE, OSA, SPIE, the American Physical Society, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the National Academy of Inventors.

  • Abstract

    Quantum dots produced in a variety of ways have introduced a larger design space for semiconductor devices. Previous work on inverted quantum dot structures has shown that the crystal-like periodicity introduces potentially useful changes in the energy band structure including sharp, high-density states above the ground state. We describe the processes for obtaining these structures and the novel features introduced into their optical and electronic properties.
