Implantable Optoelectronic Devices for Deep-Brain Neural Modulation and Sensing 

面向新型神经接口的植入式微纳光电器件

Xing Sheng  盛兴

Tsinghua University  清华大学 

 

【Abstract】Bio-integrated high performance inorganic optoelectronic devices will provide new insights on interactions between light and bio-systems. Here we present unconventional strategies to design and fabricate thin-film, microscale optoelectronic devices and use them in implantable systems for deep brain neural signal modulation and sensing. Specifically, microscale LEDs are utilized to work as light sources to interact with genetically encoded neural actuators, stimulating neural activities, while photodetectors are used to monitor the fluorescence signals of light sensitive proteins, probing neural signals. Implanted devices are wirelessly powered and controlled by a miniaturized circuit system. These devices are implanted deeply into the mouse brain, demonstrating close loop monitoring and manipulation of neural activity in vivo. Such an integrated, deeply implanted and microscale optoelectronic system provides new insights on interactions between optical signals and neural systems.

Skin-Integrated Sensors and Haptic Interfaces for VR and AR

皮肤集成传感器和触觉反馈界面在VR/AR中的应用

Xinge Yu  于欣格

City University of Hong Kong  香港城市大学

 

【Abstract】Technologies for virtual and augmented reality (VR and AR) create human experiences through visual and auditory stimuli that replicate sensations associated with the physical world.  The most widespread VR/AR systems use head-mounted displays, accelerometers and speakers as the basis for three-dimensional, computer-generated environments that can exist in isolation or as overlays with actual scenery. By comparison to the eyes and the ears, the skin is a relatively underexplored sensory interface for VR/AR technology that could, nevertheless, greatly enhance experiences, at a qualitative level, with direct relevance in areas ranging from communications and social media, to gaming, entertainment and prosthetics technology. Here we present materials, device structures, power delivery strategies and communication schemes as the basis for a wireless, battery-free platform of electronic systems and haptic interfaces capable of softly laminating onto the skin to communicate information via spatio-temporally programmable patterns of localized mechanical vibrations. The resulting technology, which we refer as epidermal VR, creates many opportunities where the skin provides an electronically programmable communication and sensory input channel to the body, as demonstrated through example applications in social media/personal engagement, prosthetic control/feedback and gaming/entertainment.

 

【摘要】虚拟现实(VR)和增强现实(AR)的技术是通过模拟外界的诸如声音和视觉刺激,并复制呈现给人体的感受器官实现虚拟的真实体验。目前广为人们熟知和认识的VR/AR是基于头戴式眼镜的3D立体成像技术加上一定的声音效果。除了视觉和听觉意外,针对人体皮肤的触觉感受的开发缺非常少。触觉在VR/AR中可以更为真实的提供虚拟现实的体验复制,从而可以用于诸如社交媒体、游戏装备、娱乐、和假肢的控制与传感等领域的诸多应用,因此有着非常重要的意义。报告将涉及新型基于无线控制、无电池驱动、皮肤集成的传感与触觉反馈界面的VR/AR技术。这种新型的VR/AR电子皮肤通过先进功能材料的选择,工程力学的设计、电子电路的优化、软硬件的协同与交互从而实现系统级别的集成,把此类技术扩展至4维甚至5维,实现触觉的反馈与控制。

Nanoionics in emerging energy storage technologies

新兴能源存储技术中的纳米离子学

Dr Yang Xu  徐杨

Department of Chemistry, University College London, UK  英国伦敦大学学院化学系

 

【Abstract】Na-ion and K-ion battery (NIB and KIB) are emerging energy storage technologies and have received rapidly increasing academic and industrial interest. This is driven by the increasing market of electric vehicles and large-scale stationary energy storage, as well as the promise of the NIB and KIB technologies to integrate renewable energy into the grid and provide electricity at rural areas for off-grid utilisation. The core challenge to develop the NIB and KIB technologies is to enhance the nanoionics of battery materials, because the large size of Na- and K-ion causes poor kinetics of ion transport and results in poor ion storage performance. This talk presents our work in material design at different length scales to take on the challenge of nanoionics. I will discuss the design in the short atomic arrangement via creating local atomic disorder and in the long atomic arrangement via regulation the level of amorphisation. The design significantly enhances the nanoionics of battery materials through creating ion transport pathways and facilitating ion accommodation and diffusion, which could provide insight into material designs for energy applications where nanoionics is of great importance.

 

【摘要】钠/钾离子电池由于其在资源与成本上的独特优势,已成为目前广受关注的新兴电化学能源存储技术,在电动汽车、大规模能源存储、可再生能源的电网集成、以及偏远地区的用电供应等领域展现了广阔的应用前景。然而钠/钾离子较大的离子半径严重限制了电极材料中的离子传输动力学,为相应离子电池的性能优化带来了巨大的挑战。因此,我们借助于纳米离子学的指导,对钠/钾离子传输机制与过程进行了深入探索,通过多尺度的设计,如局部无序度与长程无序度调控,筛选了一系列高性能电极材料,获得了高效稳定的钠/钾离子电池。相关的研究结果表明,纳米离子学的指导原则能有效缓解钠/钾离子大尺寸的负面影响,大幅提高钠/钾离子扩散系数,为高性能钠/钾离子电池材料的设计提供了适应性新思路。

Dr Xu has been actively working on energy storage materials and devices for over 10 years and is one of the pioneering scientists in the field of K-ion batteries. He is the recipient of the MINE Outstanding Young Scientist Award 2019 and the EPSRC (UK) New Investigator Award.
