Seminar of the PGI-8 / ICS-8:
Title: Printed Electronics: Towards realisation of the low-cost sensor system
Speaker: Dr. Aoife Morrin (Dublin City University)
Date: 6 January 2014 Time: 11:00
Venue: building 2.4w, seminar room 309b
The increasing demand for low cost, mass-producible sensor products promises a vast and rapidly evolving market for the sensor manufacturer. Printed chemical- and bio-sensors represent a distinct opportunity in special areas such as point-of-care medical diagnostics and smart packaging. Among the many printing techniques, inkjet printing shows great potential for the production of customised sensor interfaces due to its speed, low cost and suitability towards automation. Inkjet printing is a non-contact and non-impact printing technique that provides a “drop on demand” deposition system that can transfer designed patterns onto conductive and non-conductive substrates. These unique deposition advantages makes the inkjet printing technique an important fabrication tool for novel, commercially-viable sensor production in the future.
My talk will detail the area of Printed Electronics as it relates to enabling sensor fabrication and production, aswell as its integration with other printed subcomponents. I will also talk about the work our group has done on the development and use of smart materials in electrochemical chemical- and bio-sensor platforms that have been fabricated using inkjet printing techniques.
