Garment-Integrated Technologies Created Using Reactive Vapor Deposition

CHEM Seminar
Trisha Andrew
Univ. of Massachusetts Amherst
Skinner Hall, room 101
The College of Nursing is pleased to present the second talk in its 2018 Fall Seminar Series, to be delivered by Dr. Trisha Andrew, Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry. Dr. Andrew's research encompasses how off-the-shelf garments, textiles, and threads/yarns can be nondestructively transformed into electronic circuit components using reactive vapor deposition. Her talk will look at a selection of the technologies created using vapor-coated fibers and textiles, including smart elbow patches for movement sensing and thermoelectric wristbands that convert stray heat into stored power.
