Transparent, Flexible Sensor Developed in ICICS Bionics Network Lab

The Molecular Mechatronics Lab, led by Professor John Madden of the ICICS Bionics Network research cluster, has developed a transparent and flexible touch sensor that can detect a light touch and even the proximity of a finger. Potential applications include flexible and rollable hand-held electronics that require a touch screen interface, sensors embedded in sportswear, and large area touch sensors (e.g., on windows or doors). Lead researcher, Mirza Saquib Sarwar (left), recently published findings.
