Since the initial report of electrical conductivity in polymer materials in 1977, conductive polymers have been developed with steadily improving electrical conductivity and mechanical flexibility. Despite the challenges of simultaneously achieving sufficient thickness and satisfactory conductivity, they can be now considered as a new class of promising conductive materials for conformal applications which require antenna characteristics including flexibility, light weight and low cost. In this seminar, an ultra-wideband and a narrow band antenna of high efficiency and exceptional reversible mechanical flexibility realized in conductive polymers will be presented.
Shengjian Jammy Chen received the B.S degree in information engineering from the Guangdong University of Technology, Guangzhou, China, in 2003, and the M.S degree in electrical and electronic engineering from the University of Adelaide, Adelaide, Australia, in 2013, respectively. He is currently working toward the Ph.D. degree in electrical and electronic engineering at the University of Adelaide. His research interests include wearable and reconfigurable electromagnetic structures based on conductive polymers and condutive fabrics, RFID technology and its wearable applications.
