When

Monday 19 June 2023 from 2pm to 3pm

Please join The University of Sydney Nano Institute for a Sydney Nano Seminar, 'Nanomaterials for 3D Mesosystems: From Neural Interfaces to Environmental Monitors,' presented by Professor John A Rogers Northwestern University. Dr Nicholas Hunt, Faculty of Medicine and Health, hosts and moderates this seminar. 

About the talk:

Complex, three dimensional (3D) micro/nanostructures in biology provide sophisticated, essential functions in even the most basic forms of life. Compelling opportunities exist for analogous 3D structures in man-made devices, but existing design options are highly constrained by comparatively primitive capabilities in fabrication and growth.

Recent advances in mechanical engineering and materials science provide broad access to diverse, highly engineered classes of 3D architectures, with characteristic dimensions that range from nanometres to centimetres and areas that span square centimetres or more. The approach relies on geometric transformation of preformed two dimensional (2D) precursor micro/nanostructures and/or devices into extended 3D layouts by controlled processes of substrate-induced compressive buckling, where the bonding configurations, thickness distributions and other parameters control the final configurations.

This talk reviews the key concepts and focuses on the most recent developments with example applications in areas ranging from mesoscale microfluidic/electronic networks as neural interfaces, to bio-inspired microfliers as environmental sensing platforms.

When: Monday 19 June 2023

Time: 2:00pm-3:00pm, followed by afternoon tea

Where: Messel Lecture Theatre, Room 4002, Sydney Nanoscience Hub (Building A31), The University of Sydney
