讲座题目：Textile-based Wearable Electronics
时间：2018年9月25日（周二） 下午 16:00 -17:30
主讲嘉宾： 徐宾刚 副教授
Textiles are flexible and versatile materials consisting of natural or synthetic fibers that can be knitted, woven or nonwoven into designable network structures for a quite broad spectrum of applications. Owing to their light-weight, good breathability, flexibility and other excellent mechanical properties, textile-based materials and structures have recently attracted great attention in wearable electronics for energy harvesting, energy storage and strain sensing. In this talk, some recent works on textile-based wearable electronics ranging from nanogenerators, supercapacitors to tensile strain sensors will be introduced and discussed in terms of structures, materials and fabrications. Their potential applications in the sustainable development and personal healthcare will also be explored.
Dr Bingang Xu is Associate Professor in the Institute of Textiles and Clothing at Hong Kong Polytechnic University. He serves now as the Discipline Leader of Fashion Technology and also the Deputy Leader of BA program in the department. Dr Xu has published over 150 book chapter, journal and conference papers, and also holds 11 granted patents (6 US and 5 Chinese patents). His research interests include theoretical modeling and numerical simulations, spinning technologies, wearable electronics, smart materials and systems, novel flexible sensors, energy harvesting / conversion / storage devices, and computer-vision assisted quality assurance. His recent work on flexible energy devices and computer attention model has been published in high-impact journals such as Advanced Materials (IF=21.950), Small (IF=9.598), Applied Catalysis B-Environmental (IF=11.698), and IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics (IF=8.803). As representative research innovations, his research teams consecutively won a Gold Award with the Congratulations of Jury in International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva in Switzerland, in 2017 and 2018, respectively.
Dr Xu is now serving as a reviewer for over 20 international journals including Advanced Materials, Applied Catalysis B-Environmental, Acta Biomaterialia, Nanscale, and ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, and also served as a Technical Program Committee member for 20 international conferences with themes in advanced materials, energy and power, electrical engineering and automation, materials and environmental. He also served as external assessor and examiner for overseas research grant proposals and PhD thesis.
