Title: One-dimensional semiconducting nanostructures for flexible image sensors
Over the last few decades, advancements in flexible electronics have spread across an expansive area ranging from the development of fundamental transistors, different kinds of sensing devices, and flexible organic light-emitting diode displays in various kinds of flexible substrates. This academic interest in flexible electronics will continue for some years, which is driven by the growing demand for electronics permitting lightweight design, portability, and low manufacturing cost as compared to their rigid substrate counterparts, and supported by techniques for the ceaseless miniaturization of individual elements in microelectronics.
In this talk, I will briefly introduce some of the progress of flexible image sensors made of one-dimensional nanostructures in my group. Strategies to improve the performance of single nanowire devices were first introduced, including forming heterostructures, inorganic-organic hybrid nanostructures as well as nanowire arrays. Flexible image sensors are then fabricated with device arrays. By introducing metal oxide memristors, flexible artificial visual system was then developed.
