KAUST Discovery: Baby steps for transparent electronics


A submicrometer-thin mesh of silver nanowires—that is transparent to light, highly electrically conductive, flexible and stretchable, and simple to make—has been developed by the IMPACT lab. The material could find use in flexible electronic displays, sensors, solar cells or even incubators for newborn babies.

Don't Talk Back! at IMS2017 3MT® Farhan Abdul Ghaffar, Honorable Mention


Farhan Abdul Ghaffar received the Honorable Mention for his presentation, 'Don't Talk Back!' at The Inaugural IMS2017 Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Competition.

Smart Bandage


Smart bandage technology provides instant updates on the condition of chronic wounds through a mobile phone app. Injuries that fail to heal within three months, such as many diabetic foot ulcers, can require years of treatment and significant healthcare resources. A sensor-laden bandage developed by a research team at KAUST promises to reduce the burden on hospitals and enhance patient well-being by transforming how chronic wounds are monitored.
