About The Author

Shantonu Biswas is a postdoctoral researcher from the University of California, Santa Barbara in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering and Department of Mechanical Engineering. His research communities in the field of stretchable electronics. This is a special type of electronics or electronic systems which are stretchable and deformable, and which morph to adapt to new topologies and form factors. His research interest follows a similar interest to realize an electronics world where the user will shape their electronic devices at will to adapt their shapes and functionality.

                       

Toward A 3D Metamorphic Touchpad

Published by Shantonu Biswas California NanoSystems Institute, University of California, Santa Barbara These findings are described in the article entitled Metamorphic Stretchable Touchpad, recently published in the journal Advanced Materials Technologies (2019). This research was conducted by Dr. Shantonu Biswas from the  Technische Universität Ilmenau, Germany (currently at University of California, Santa Barbara), under supervision of professor Heiko O. Jacobs. The touchpad is one of the most commonly used human-machine interfaces that is being used by people all over the world in their...

Metamorphic Electronics For 3D Acoustics

Recent advancement in the field of electronics has taken a shift to enable the realization of mechanical stretchable electronic products. Mechanical stretchability is key to produce electronic systems, which morph to take on new form factors. However, current strategies have some limitations. For example, wrapping of a standard PET bottle with electronics would greatly benefit from stretchable electronics with a tailored localized stretchability to better adapt to the shape of the bottle. Similarly, the human skin has areas of low...
