Sensor Technology Research Centre

Flexible Electronics Laboratory

The Flexible Electronics Laboratory works on soft, bioinspired devices and systems to enable the unobtrusive integration of sensors and electronics into the everyday life of humans.


The flexible and large area electronics activities at the School of Engineering and Informatics are led by Niko Münzenrieder.
We realize novel sensors and active circuits for systems on flexible large area substrates in our class 100 cleanroom. This is done by performing basic research on oxide based semiconductors and devices, development of innovative low temperature fabrication processes e.g. based on thin-film technology or 3D printing, the optimization of the electrical and mechanical properties of our devices and circuits, as well as their integration into deformable everyday objects.
