Abstract

New concepts in materials science, mechanics design, manufacturing and light management provide routes to high performance optoelectronic systems that can flex, bend, twist and even stretch like a rubber band. The resulting opportunities range from unusual display and lighting systems, wearable monitors, surgical tools and other classes of devices that cannot be achieved with conventional technologies. This talk outlines some of the key ideas, and describes their use in specific examples, ranging from arrays of microscale LEDs for flexible display, to skin-like devices for photoplethysmography.
