Abstract: The advance of integrated circuits inthe last decade has ushered in the age of miniaturized electronics that arebecoming more portable, wearable, stand-alone and even implantable than everbefore. Theythen require power solutions that are sustainable, maintenance-free and evenperpetual. With this regard, energy harvesting techniques that can capture andconvert ambient energy have emerged as a supplementary and even an alternativepower solution. In the last severalyears, a new type of energy harvesting technology named as triboelectricnanogenerator (TENG) has emerged to harness ambient mechanical motions. Itfeatures unparalleled advantages over other developed existing technologies,including high power density, light weight, small size, low cost, flexibilityand even transparency. This talk will have detailed elaborations on how to develophigh-performance TENG devices. Our recent works will be shown to illustrateeach designing strategy.

Abstract: In thepast hundreds of years, the drug deliveries by oral and injection wereconsidered as a convenient and efficient method. However, as the development ofpharmaco and medicine, the filtration of liver and the obstruction of cells’wall were found to result in the low efficiency of drug release to the target.Therefore, in order to overcome these drawbacks, researchers propose anattractive future vision that delivering the drug to the target directly oreven releasing the drug inside cells. This is named the smartstimuli-responsive drug release system, which is high-efficiency, controllableand long-life.
Biography:Xiao-Sheng Zhang received the Ph.D. degree from Peking University, Beijing,China, in July 2014. He is currently working as a postdoctoral researcher atécole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, and as a jointresearcher at the University of Tokyo. His current research interests mainlyinclude three areas: (1) micro/nano integrated fabrication technology; (2)micro/nano energy technology; (3) smart drug delivery system. He has publishedmore than 20 peer-reviewed journal papers and contributed for over 15international conferences. He applied 14 Chinese patents (6 issued) and won 16awards. He also serves as the independent referee for several journals andconferences (ACS Nano, Adv. Funct. Mater., Nano Energy, ACS Appl. Mater.Interfaces, J. Opt., NEMS2015, etc.).
