2020 MRS Spring Meeting

Call for Papers

In March of this year, MRS leadership made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 MRS Spring Meeting in Phoenix for the safety and well-being our members, attendees, staff and the materials community, and to reschedule as much of the program as possible into a special 2020 Joint MRS Spring and Fall Meeting.

This one-time-only joint event will take place in Boston, from Saturday, November 28 through Friday, December 4—expanding by one day to provide programming capacity. The program flow for each symposium is under development and will be announced in early July.

Symposium S.SM03—Flexible, Stretchable Biointegrated Materials, Devices and Related Mechanics

Recent advances in materials science and mechanical engineering enable us to realize high-performance systems in soft, flexible/stretchable forms that can readily integrate with the curvilinear and time-dynamic surfaces of the human body. These capabilities create interesting opportunities for diverse electronics with human-machine integration such as bio-medical sensor, optoelectronic/optogenetic devices, and large scale ICs on ultrathin polymers.

This symposium will cover high performance flexible, stretchable, bio-integrated devices and related mechanics along with key considerations in their designs, materials, mechanical structures. Therefore, high performance inorganic and nanoscale materials such as inorganic semiconductors, carbon, and metal oxides, perovskites and their hybrids will be discussed. In addition, our subjects are focused on the mechanics, modeling and design for highly flexible and stretchable inorganic and hybrid materials for bio-integrated applications. The symposium will be open to diverse groups with ultrathin inorganic and hybrid-based flexible/stretchable devices for bio-integrated electronics, optoelectronics, optogenetic devices, sensors, actuators, and energy devices.

Topics will include:

  • Inorganic & Hybrid Materials-Based Bio-Integrated Devices
  • Flexible, Stretchable Electronics, Sensors, Optoelectronics, and Energy Devices with Human-Machine Integration
  • Mechanics, Modeling & Design for Flexible and Stretchable Inorganic/Hybrid Materials and Devices
  • Stretchable Electrodes and Electronics for Bio-Integrated Application
  • Biodegradable, Transient Electronic Devices
  • Transferring Processes of Inorganic/Hybrid Semiconductor Materials
  • 3D Micro-structured Stretchable Materials, Devices and Patternings
  • A tutorial complementing this symposium is tentatively planned.
