Organic thin film transistors for sensors, bioelectronic interfaces and bionics

Organic electronic devices are flexible, light weight and stretchable, which makes them an ideal candidate for integrating and interfacing with soft tissues in biological systems. An attractive attribute of organic electronic devices is the solution processibility of constituent layers, since solution-processable devices have the potential to be printed into complex designs and shapes, leading to integrated devices with multiple functionalities.Particularly, organic thin film transistors (OTFTs) have the potential to offer low cost, easy to use and printable sensors for a …

Indoor sensors to measure and visualise environmental data

We have an ongoing project that investigates how people change their work environment to suit their comfort needs. We have existing electronic devices that we want to optimise for better correlation and visualisation of the indoor climate measurements (lighting, thermal, air quality, occupancy). This would contribute to devices that are better integrated and more responsive to the demands of occupants.

Laser light sensors that see through containers

Raman scattering has been used as a powerful 'fingerprinting' technique for more than 80 years, and is widely used by security and law enforcement for detecting hazardous threats. To better safeguard the community, QUT has developed a unique eye -safe laser Raman sensing system for detecting threats, that works at distance from a target (> 10 m) and operates in real time. Increasingly however, threats are being concealed in order to avoid detection. This project will investigate what range of …

Care in Correction: Promoting Health in Australian Prisons

Half of Australia’s prison population have a disability. Correctional facilities have an opportunity to help people who require health care to recover, and by doing so, increase their likelihood of living independently and not re-offending. International examples show that the incorporation of health facilities into correctional facilities has been beneficial not only to prisoners themselves but to general public health practices as well.This has been especially the case for First Nations peoples in incarceration in Canada and New Zealand. Existing …

Polymer particles as precision sensors for molecules

Polymer particles are a billion-dollar industry with a diverse range of applications from biomedical to industrial coatings. As a prime example, point-of-care testing devices rely on polymeric particles with various size and functionality to conveniently allow instantaneous, selective, and precise diagnostics. However, as new applications arise and current applications advance, these demand the preparation of increasingly complex material and particle systems.The Soft Matter Materials Team has developed a simple method to form uniform particles without any additives, initiators or stabilizers. …
