    "Materials for Biodegradable Electronics"

    Joint meeting with the Chicago Section of the
    American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE)

    ABSTRACT

    A remarkable feature of modern integrated circuit technology is its ability to operate in a stable fashion, with almost perfect reliability and without physical or chemical change.  Recently developed classes of electronic materials create an opportunity to engineer the opposite outcome, in the form of devices that can dissolve in water to yield completely benign end products.  The enabled applications include zero-impact environmental monitors, 'green' consumer electronics and bio-resorbable biomedical implants - none of which can be achieved with technologies that exist today.  This presentation describes foundational concepts in chemistry, materials science and assembly processes for bioresorbable electronics, in 1D, 2D and 3D architectures, the latter enabled by approaches that draw inspiration from the ancient arts of kirigami and origami.  Wireless sensors of intracranial temperature, pressure and electrophysiology designed for use in treatment of traumatic brain injury provide application examples.

    BIOGRAPHY

    Professor John A. Rogers obtained BA and BS degrees in chemistry and in physics from the University of Texas, Austin, in 1989.  From MIT, he received SM degrees in physics and in chemistry in 1992 and the PhD degree in physical chemistry in 1995.  From 1995 to 1997, Rogers was a Junior Fellow in the Harvard University Society of Fellows.  He joined Bell Laboratories as a Member of Technical Staff in the Condensed Matter Physics Research Department in 1997, and served as Director of this department from the end of 2000 to 2002.  He then spent thirteen years on the faculty at University of Illinois, most recently as the Swanlund Chair Professor and Director of the Seitz Materials Research Laboratory.  In Sept 2016, he joined Northwestern University as the Louis Simpson and Kimberly Querrey Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Chemistry and Neurological Surgery, where he is also the founding Director of the newly endowed Center on Bio-Integrated Electronics.  His research has been recognized by many awards including the Baekeland Award (ACS, 2007), a MacArthur Fellowship (2009), the Lemelson-MIT Prize (2011), the Smithsonian Award for American Ingenuity in the Physical Sciences (2013), and the Society of Engineering Science Eringen Medal (2014).  He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
