Bendable Electronics and Sensing Technologies (BEST) Group

Latest News

BEST Group members presenting their MSc research works at the School of Engineering during a poster presentation session hosted at University of Glasgow.
BEST group publishes a paper entitled "Nanowire FET based Neural Element for Robotic Tactile Sensing Skin" in Frontiers.   
  Multiple articles from BEST Group have been accepted in the next IEEE Sensors Conference 2017 (Glasgow, UK).
  BEST group publishes a paper entitled "Bending Induced Electrical Response Variations in Ultra-thin Flexible Chips and Device Modeling" in Applied Physics Reviews.   
  BEST group publishes a paper entitled "Energy Autonomus, Transparent, and Flexible Tactile Skin" in Advanced Functional Materials.   

Bendable Electronics and Sensing Technology (BEST) group focusses on the multidisciplinary fields, comprising: Advanced Materials, Sensors, Energy Systems and Robotics. Our vision is to develop cost-effective high-performance flexible and large-area electronics and sensing systems on non-conventional substrates for wearable applications.

Advanced Materials

We investigate advanced materials, including semiconductor nanowires, two dimentional materials, and stretchable electronic materials for for different applications. 

Sensors

Integration of different types of sensors and electronics on flexible substrates, the electronic skin concept can also be extended to many other applications such as rollable sheets of solar cells or bendable photonics.

Energy Systems

We develop 

Robotics

 

A summary of our research and vision is given in Dr. Dahiya TEDxGlasgow talk:
