Subthreshold OECT operation for low power EEG amplification

Screenshot 2018-07-05 11.44.38

Vishak’s paper “Subthreshold Operation of Organic Electrochemical Transistors for Biosignal Amplification” is now online at Advanced Science. Congratulations, Vishak! This work details the use of OECTs with sharp subthreshold slopes (60 mV/dec) for EEG amplification circuits. We show low power consumption and stability in subthreshold operation. Transconductance efficiency is the key! Read it online — open access.

Thanks to the McLeod group (Boulder) and materials from McCulloch group (Imperial/KAUST) for making this possible.

Prof. Rivnay receives 2018 NSF CAREER award

Prof. Jonathan Rivnay awarded an NSF CAREER award for “Understanding the Role of Structure on Ionic/Electronic Properties in Polymeric Mixed Conductors.”

In addition to studies of structure and transport in materials relevant for bioelectronics, the group aims to enhance science communication through community engagement, exploring the effect of the duration of outreach events on the development of researchers as teachers/mentors.
