Flexible Electronics, Volume 1

Mechanical background, materials and manufacturing
Vinod Kumar Khanna


Flexible electronics is an emerging field with the potential for huge industrial importance. Comprising of three volumes, this work offers a cohesive, coherent and comprehensive overview of the subject. Themes covered include mechanical theory, materials science aspects, fabrication technologies, devices and applications.

Khanna provides a systematic, step-by-step treatment of each topic and utilizes clear and attractive illustrations throughout. The latest research and developments in this discipline are included, providing an excellent resource for graduate students, researchers and industry scientists.

This volume covers the mechanical aspects of hard-film/soft-substrate structures and the impacts of stress and strain, including deformation and cycling of ductile films, and straining permeation barriers.
