Muhammad Hassan Malik
Muhammad Hassan Malik was born in Karachi, Pakistan. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Electronics from Pakistan Air Force Karachi Institute of Economics and Technology (PAF-KIET). Hassan received his master’s degree in Micro and Nano Systems from Technical University Chemnitz, Germany in 2019. He did his master thesis at Silicon Austria Labs GmbH investigating material properties of thin films for the development of process control monitors. His area of interest is electronics packaging and integration. Hassan is currently a Marie Curie early stage researcher for AQUASENSE project at the Silicon Austria Labs Gmbh, Villach, Austria.
RP8: Integration on flexible substrates (ESR8, SAL)
Plastic electronics, thin-film-transistors on foil and ultra-thin chips (UTC) on foil are technologies currently pursued to support the strongly emerging flexible electronics market. To achieve this, the development of autonomous multi-sensory systems also requires strategy for integrate various sensing and electronic components on flexible packages which are suitable for water quality monitoring and easy to manufacture. This project will develop conductive structures on various flexible substrates, ink-jet printing of functional layers, UV-curing processes of metal inks and metal layers on low temperature substrates, as well as the bonding and accurate placement of UTCs and sensors.
