Flexible Solar Cells for Internet of Nano Things (IoNT) Applications

NanoMalaysia Berhad, Malaysia

The growth of the Fourth Industrial Revolution has driven the requirement for interconnected smart devices where arrays of interconnected network of nanoscale and nanostructured devices are capable to compute, analyse and communicate with the wider internet and IoT infrastructure, hence enabling the Internet of Nano Things (IoNT) solutions. As low power, high performance nanoscale devices are integrated with the digital world, renewable energy such as solar cells will have a more important role in providing sustainable green energy to these solutions.

A structure hierarchy descriptor enabling quantitative microelectronics failure analysis

Sun Yat-sen University, China

The field of physical and failure analysis has been facing increasing challenges as new architectures, circuits, devices, packaging, and materials emerge and are co-designed with a myriad of combinations and options. Failures in microelectronics can occur at different scales, from electronic to macro. The characterization tools in the field, therefore, must span multiple scales to identify root causes and isolate faults. Captured by characterization tools at different scales, digital images are critical for physical and failure analysis, from which only qualitative information to date, however, has been drawn and examined through empirical methods. Inspired by the materials genome paradigm, this talk will present case studies using a recently proposed method of MicroStructure Hierarchy Descriptor (μSHD) to systematically quantify images captured by OM, SEM, STEM, EDS, and GHz-SAM.

Failure Analysis of Engineering Materials in Embracing Megatrends: Bridging Solutions and Failures by Integrated Knowledge

Universiti Sains Malaysia, Malaysia

The World is driven by digitization and Internet-of-Things or Everything to meet the needs of global citizen and to resolve global concerns as advocated by United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The requirements of different engineering products, from the quality, reliability, health, and safety aspects, to support the demands through Industrial Revolution 4.0 are becoming more stringent.
