MICRO-514 / 4 credits

Teacher: Lacour Stéphanie

Language: English


Summary

The course is an introduction to the emerging field of flexible (bio)electronics. It provides an overview of the materials and processes used to design and manufacture flexible circuits and sensors. Applications encompass flexible sensors, biointerfaces, human-machine interfaces and neuroprosthetic
