Kaichen XU


Zhejiang University


Kaichen XU is currently a ZJU-100 Professor at the School of Mechanical Engineering, Zhejiang University (ZJU). He received the PhD degree from National University of Singapore (NUS) in 2018 and then moved to Osaka Prefecture University (OPU) as a JSPS Postdoctoral Fellow in Japan. His research mainly includes multifunctional flexible electrodes/sensors and systems’ integration, advanced laser manufacturing. In the past five years, over 20 papers have been published in Adv. Mater., Adv. Funct. Mater., Adv. Sci., ACS Nano etc. 3 articles were recognized as ESI Hot/Highly Cited Papers. He was invited to serve as a Corresponding Expert of Engineering, Youth Editor of International Journal of Extreme Manufacturing (IJEM) and Editorial Board of Opto-Electronic Engineering. He is independent reviewers for over 40 journals (over 160 times).


Sensors play a crucial role in the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, in vitro and in vivo diagnosis etc. In recent years, the development of flexible electronic manufacturing technologies has significantly extended the applications of smart sensors, which can be conformally attached onto the irregular surfaces or objects with large curvatures. High-performance flexible sensors usually rely on judiciously engineering micro/nano-structures and active materials. Advanced laser manufacturing is endowed with versatile functionalities for flexible electronics. Based on the principle of laser-matter interactions, various novel flexible sensors have been developed to dynamically track pressure, temperature, humidity, slanting angles etc. Coupled with hybrid manufacturing technologies, this talk will also introduce several types of integrated flexible sensing systems and their multifunctional applications including in vitro/vivo diagnosis.
