A characteristic feature of modern silicon integrated circuit technology is its ability to operate in a stable, reliable fashion, almost indefinitely for practical purposes.  Recent work demonstrates that carefully selected sets of materials and device designs enable a class of silicon electronics that has the opposite behavior -- it physically disappears in water or biofluids, in a controlled manner, at programmed times, and in an environmentally benign way.  This talk summarizes recent work on this type of 'transient' electronics technology, ranging from basic studies of dissolution of the key materials, to development of components and systems with radio frequency operation, to invention of schemes for externally 'triggering' transient behavior.

This seminar will be broadcast live and also archived on our website www.istc.illinois.edu for later viewing. If you cannot attend the event at ISTC, you may view the webinar live by registering at: https://www4.gotomeeting.com/register/507424991
