Manufacturing and Prototyping
Faculty researchers conducting fundamental R&D on advanced micro/nano-manufacturing, materials, and processes for next-generation sensing devices and systems. Translation of scalable manufacturing for the development of wearable devices for monitoring of personal health and performance utilizing print and roll-to-roll (R2R) process technology integrated on flexible-hybrid electronics platforms. Translational products include printed microfluidic devices and sensing platforms for real time measurement of biomarkers from sweat, high selectivity printed biomarker sensors capable of analyzing disease from blood or breath, biomimetic surfaces for antimicrobial devices, and integrated biometric sensors for monitoring heart rate, body temperature, pulse oxymmetry, metabolytes, and electrolytes for human performance assessment.
