Most of the objects in our daily life are not planar, but bendable and foldable like documents and textiles. The integration of electronic functionality into everyday objects can improve their benefit to the user, and also give rise to new applications, such as flexible displays and smart textiles. Therefore we are working on flexible electronic devices and on their integration into textiles and other objects.

  • Inorganic thin-film devices on plastic substrates
  • Influence of mechanical strain on device performance
  • Enhancement of device flexibility
  • New device structures and materials for improved electrical performance
  • Flexible tilt sensors
  • Thin-film temperature sensors
  • Humidity and gas sensors based on organic sensing layers
  • Flexible UV sensors
  • Flexible MOX gas sensors
  • Integrated digital and analog circuits based on IGZO TFTs
  • Influence of bending on circuit performance
  • Mechanically flexible amplifiers
  • Transfer of electronic membrane
  • Electronics on everyday objects
  • Weaving of flexible thin-film electronics into textiles
  • Textile based sensor systems
  • Functional textiles for medical applications
