Bendable Electronics and Sensing Technologies (BEST)

Bendable Electronics and Sensing Technologies (BEST)

‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌Our multidisciplinary research interests include Flexible and Printable Electronics, Electronic Skin, Robotic Tactile Sensing, Bendable electronics device modelling, Micro/Macroelectronics and System Integration.

Our research philosophy is to enhance understanding of the fundamental issues, on one hand, and orientation towards applications on the other – basically, orienting science and technology towards bringing solutions to the society.

At BEST, we are developing high-performance and cost-effective electronics and sensing systems on flexible substrates to enable tools such as electronic skin (also known as tactile skin, smart skin or synthetic skin) which is of burgeoning interest in areas such as robotics, prosthetics, healthcare, wearable systems, and surgical instruments.

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.

We are pursuing these research areas through many individual and collaborative research projects.
