Seminar Title: Garment-Integrated Technologies Created Using Reactive Vapor Deposition

Abstract:
Off-the-shelf garments, textiles and threads/yarns, can be nondestructively transformed into electronic circuit components using reactive vapor deposition. Selected technologies created using vapor-coated fibers and textiles will be described, including: (1) smart elbow braces for movement sensing; (2) textile triboelectric generators that convert small body motions into stored energy; (3) thread/yarn supercapacitors that can be sewed or knitted into garments for wearable and portable energy storage; (4) fabric electrodes for...
