Symposium Frontiers of Materials Award Symposium: 2021 Functional Nanomaterials: Translating Innovation into Pioneering Technologies
Organizer(s) Huanyu Cheng, Pennsylvania State University
Scope Rapidly evolved bio-inspired electronics can find wide-ranging application opportunities in fundamental biomedical research, clinical healthcare, human-machine interface, robotics, and many others. Their future development needs the fundamental innovations in materials synthesis, device designs, and fabrication methods to address the profound mismatch between biology and electronics and to introduce novel attributes such as bioresorbable, self-healing, stimuli-responsive, and recyclable.

With exquisite strategies developed for structures and materials in nature, bio-inspiration has spurred the rapid development of a broad range of materials for bioelectronics spanning from flexible and stretchable forms of electronic materials, hydrogels, liquid metals, elastomer composites, biomaterials, or emerging nanomaterials and structures. Demonstrated devices include sensors, actuators, energy harvesters, power supplies, and antennas with representative examples from skin-like electronics, implantable electronics, syringe-injectable mesh electronics, cellular bioelectronic interface, 3D electronic scaffolds, among many others. Various approaches to integrating these materials and devices for advanced bio-electronic systems include transfer printing, nanoscale deterministic assembly, micro/nanoscale fabrication, mechanically guided 3D assembly, additive manufacturing, and many others.

The objective of this symposium is to provide a forum for researchers from academia, industry and national labs to present, discuss and exchange the latest development in theoretical, computational, and experimental studies on application of nanomaterials in bio-inspired electronics. It will focus on the fundamental materials science, novel device design and function, new fabrication techniques, and potential biomedical applications. Interdisciplinary topics related to physics, chemistry, biology, materials science, and electrical engineering will shed important insights and inspire possible new frontiers of
bio-inspired electronics.
