electronics provide unique solutions toward many applications including
integrated sensors, intelligent textiles, rollable displays, and flexible
mobile systems, where energy generation and storage devices are essentially
needed. In the past decade, there has been tremendous interest in flexible
energy devices. There are still grand challenges in the fundamental research to
accelerate the flexible energy device and systems closer to commercial reality,
many of which are related to new materials and structures with tailored
properties, novel devices with both excellent functionality and mechanical
flexibility, and system-level integrations.
new MRS symposium is intended to provide a forum for scientists and engineers
working in flexible energy systems and the related fields to communicate recent
progress on the current technologies and exchange the ideas about
next-generation solutions. Abstracts on both fundamental and applied aspects on
the modeling, synthesis and characterization of flexible energy materials (e.g.
paper, textile, carbon nanotube, graphene, polymers, composites and 3D porous
structures), energy conversion and storage devices (e.g. solar cells,
batteries, supercapacitors, thermoelectrics, piezoelectrics), fabrication and integration
of flexible devices, and challenges for fully functional energy devices, and
other related topics are invited.
