Shapeable Magnetoelectronics
Appl. Phys. Rev. 3, 011101 (2016) URL PDF


There is a trend in electronics towards becoming shapeable (flexible, stretchable or printable), which allows electronic components to be arbitrarily reshaped after fabrication. This unique feature offers new unexplored functionalities for the markets of consumer electronics and eMobility. Shapeable electronics and optoelectronics have been developed already for a few years.

Very recently, we added a new member to this family - the shapeable magnetic sensorics, which pave the way towards the development of a unique class of devices with important functionality being not only shapeable and fast, but also with the ability to react and respond to a magnetic field. Shapeable magnetic sensor devices could enable the fabrication of, e.g. health monitoring systems, where large-angle folding of the micrometer-sized functional elements is a crucial prerequisite for a successful implementation.

In the ERC project SMaRT we aim to develop shapeable magnetoelectronics to the industry-ready product and integrate these magnetic field sensorics into flexible large area multifunctional devices consisting of flexible batteries, communication modules and different types of sensing elements, e.g. environmental, chemical, temperature.

02/2016Gungun Lin receives Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-Financed Students Abroad
We congratulate Mr. Gungun Lin with the prestigious Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-financed Student Abroad.

Sponsored by the Chinese Ministry of Education, the award recognizes the academic excellence of non-Chinese-government funded Chinese students studying overseas and is granted across all fields of study. The winners are selected through a rigorous process of evaluation of their academic and research work and no more than 500 young talents receive the award every year. 

12/2015EEK prize goes to Dr. Robert Streubel
Our warmest congratulations to Dr. Robert Streubel who was awarded the high profile Ernst-Eckhard-Koch-Prize 2015 for his outstanding doctoral Thesis in the field of research with synchrotron radiation. Certificate

Dr. Robert Streubel secured a postdoctoral position at the Materials Sciences Division, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley, USA. We wish him much success in his future academic career.
