报告人：Institute of Materials and Systems for Sustainability, Nagoya University, Yutaka Ohno
Carbon nanotube thin films are promising electronic materials for flexible and stretchable devices with excellent wearability and performance because of the high-carrier mobility, mechanical flexibility, and biocompatibility. Recent progresses of CNT technologies such as high-purity separation processes enable us to realize the complex integrated circuits necessary for functional flexible devices such as wearable healthcare devices, electronic skin of robots, and so on. In this seminar, after reviewing recent progresses of carbon nanotube-based electron devices, our recent works on flexible carbon nanotube thin film transistors and integrated circuits will be presented. Low-voltage CMOS realized by precise doping controls, highly-stretchable thin film transistors and integrated circuits, and analog integrated circuits have been developed recently. In particular, the concept to design carbon nanotube-based analog integrated circuits, which are indispensable for sensor devices, will be presented in detail, along with a demonstration of the first carbon nanotube differential amplifiers on a flexible plastic film.
