We are very glad to host a knowledge sharing seminar presented by Senior lecturer Hoang-Phuong Phan from Sydney in Australia. You are most welcome to our virtual seminar where you will learn new knowledge and build new potential research collaborations.

Title: Engineering nanomembrane semiconductors for long-lived bioimplanted electronics


Abstract: Advancement in implantable electronics have been revolutionising the healthcare sector owing to their powerful capability for real-time and continuous physiological recording and stimulation. Since such systems involve direct interfaces with surrounding biofluidic environments, maintaining their long-term sustainable operation, without leakage currents or corrosion, is a daunting challenge. This talk will introduce a platform utilising wide band gap semiconductors that are synthesised on standard, low-cost silicon substrates and physically transferred onto flexible templates for implant applications. The new flexible platform offers several attractive features such as chemical stability in biofluids, outstanding water


Dr. Hoang-Phuong Phan is a Senior Lecturer and an ARC DECRA fellow at the school of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, the University of New South Wales - UNSW Sydney. His research interests cover a broad range of semiconductor devices and applications, including micro/nano mechatronics, integrated sensors, flexible electronics, and biomedical devices. Dr. Phan has been a visiting scholar at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan in 2016, Stanford University, CA, USA in 2017, and Northwestern University, IL, USA in 2019. He has published over 100 journal articles (e.g. Nat. Comm., Science Adv., PNAS, ACS Nano, Adv. Funct. Mater., Adv. Sci., Angew Chemie.), two US patents, and four book/book-chapters, all in micro and nanotechnologies. Dr. Phan was the recipient of the Japanese Government scholarships (MEXT) for undergraduate & postgraduate studies from 2006 to 2013 at The University of Tokyo, Japan, and GUPRS & GUIPRS scholarships from Griffith for the doctoral course (2013-2016). He serves in the Executive Technical Program Committee of the 2020 and 2021 IEEE International Conferences on MicroElectroMechanical Systems (IEEE MEMS).
