Symposium D-11: Instability and Interfacial Adhesions in Bio-Compatible Electronics

(Mechanics of Solids and Structures)

Symposium Organizers:

Shuodao Wang, Oklahoma State University

Huanyu Cheng, Pennsylvania State University

Jianling Xiao, University of Colorado at Boulder

Symposium Technical Description

This symposium aims to offer a forum to foster discussions on the latest mechanics advances in the instability and interfacial adhesion in heterogeneous, integrated micro-structures and their applications in bio-compatible electronics. Soft electronics, including flexible, stretchable, and bio-integrated and bio-mimicking electronic systems, have enabled novel and promising designs for display, energy, and therapeutic and diagnostic medical applications. An important objective of this symposium is to forge interactions among active researchers from applied mechanics, chemical engineering, materials science & engineering, and electrical engineering so that collaborative contributions can be made to this highly interdisciplinary topic. Both fundamental research in mechanics and materials and practical applications in advanced technologies are welcome. Two sessions will be organized for the following topics:

  • Mechanics and instability in hard-soft integrated systems
  • Adhesion and fracture at heterogeneous interfaces
