The Title of Speech: Micro/nano optics for flexible functional devices: today and future
Biography of the Speaker: Chen Linsen, born in 1961, graduated from Soochow University in 1982 and was visiting scholar of Carnegie-Mellon University in 1996-1997. He became a professor in Soochow University since 1998. He is chief of national united engineering research center of digital optical imaging and display, and the director of Holography & Optical Information Processing Committee of Optical Society of China. He has been engaged in holography, micro-nano manufacturing, nano-patterning systems and functional devices for more than 25 years.
He was co-founder and president of SVG Optronics in 2001, who is a stock company in ShenZhen Stock Exchanges of china. He established the Flexible Nanotechnology Platform for merging optics and nanotechnology to promote commercial uses. His research achievements have been applied Chinese identification and driver-license cards, large size flexible touch sensors for touch panels, ultra-thin light guide films for Surface Pro4’s keyboard and nano-structure printing for 3D printing industries widely. Due to his contributions to innovation on micro-nano-patterning, the roll-to-roll nano-imprinting technology and the industrial applications, he earned the National S&T Awards(2ndgrad) by Chinese central government in 2001 and 2011, the Innovation Awards for Excellent Chinese Patent in 2010, 2012 and 2015 by SIPO & WIPO, and won the Distinguished Award of Suzhou and Jiangsu in 2008 and 2011, respectively. He has also 100 patents and the 100 published papers.
His interesting is to merge optics with nanotechnologies to promote the environment-friend functional films and devices for flexible electronics devices.
Abstract of Speech: The development of highly functional films and devices with micro/nano-structures plays a significant role in accelerating the application progress of flexible devices. Design and fabrication of novel films and devices with specific functional micro/nano-structure has become a popular trend in industry. But the processes and technologies for flexible electronics devices still have to be improved.
 Nanoscale feature size and high performance compatible with large format and cost-effective are two key challenges for flexible electronics devices. One issue is the huge data processing, transferring and patterning for large format nano-structure devices. For example, a 6 inch format nano-device with 100nm feature size will have more than 2Tbit data capacity. Different from silicone-based devices, the new technologies must be exploited for flexible substrates, including roll-to-roll nano-manufacturing instead of wafer-to-wafer patterning.
This topic will give an introduction to high rate micro/nano-patterning and approaches and systems for the highly functional films and devices. The novel transparent conductive films with micro-metal mesh structures for large format projected capacitive touch panels and multi-directional backlight for glasses-free 3D display have been investigated based on micro/nano optics. The transparent conductive films of 55 inch low sheet resistance, and directional backlight with 64 viewpoints have been shown and discussed.
It is certain that the novel nano-manufacturing technologies will continue to show its powerful influences on the revolution of flexible, wearable, 3D films and devices in the near future.
There are lots of collaboration opportunities on flexible optoelectronic devices based on the nano manufacturing.
