The field of flexible electronics has rapidly expanded over the last decades, pioneering novel applications, such as wearable and textile integrated devices, seamless and embedded patch-like systems, soft electronic skins, as well as imperceptible and transient implants. The possibility to revolutionize our daily life with such disruptive appliances has(More)
Smart textiles promise to have a significant impact on future wearable devices. Among the different approaches to combine electronic functionality and fabrics, the fabrication of active fibers results in the most unobtrusive integration and optimal compatibility between electronics and textile manufacturing equipment. The fabrication of electronic devices,(More)
This paper presents the optimization of electronic circuitry for operation in the harsh electro magnetic (EM) environment during a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. As demonstrator, a device small enough to be worn during the scan is optimized. Based on finite element method (FEM) simulations, the induced current densities due to magnetic field changes(More)
In this work, we present a novel method to reduce the subthreshold swing of field-effect transistors below 60 mV/dec. Through modeling, we directly relate trap charge movement between the gate electrode and the gate dielectric to subthreshold swing reduction. We experimentally investigate the impact of charge exchange between a Cu gate electrode and a 5 nm(More)
Stabilization of silicon micro-resonators is a key requirement for their inclusion in larger photonic integrated circuits. In particular, thermal refractive index shift in non-linear applications can detune devices from their optimal working point. A cavity stabilization scheme using a microprocessor based feedback control loop is presented based on a local(More)
One of the major challenges to the widespread adoption of plasmonic and nano-optical devices in real-life applications is the difficulty to mass-fabricate nano-optical antennas in parallel and reproducible fashion, and the capability to precisely place nanoantennas into devices with nanometer-scale precision. In this study, we present a solution to this(More)
Recent advances in wearable computing ask for bendable and conformable electronic circuits and sensors, allowing an easy integration into everyday life objects. Here, we present a novel flexible tilt sensor on plastic using conductive microspheres as gravity sensitive pendulum. The sensor provides a digital output of the measurement signal without the need(More)
