Brief description This project aims to support the development of flexible electronic devices incorporating the functional properties of oxide thin films. Oxide thin films require high processing temperatures, which are incompatible with flexible substrates. This project seeks to provide a solution by using a novel transfer process that allows oxides to be combined with flexible polymer substrates. Applications in sensing under the influence of heat, gas, and light will be studied. This project will potentially create devices that can be conformally applied to surfaces or worn on a person to act as low-cost sensors for toxic gases or ultraviolet radiation.
