Radio interviews on recent work in Nature Materials

Yoeri was recently interviewed on national radio for the recently published work in Nature Materials.  The interview (in Dutch) on BNR Newsradio can be listened to here: And a mention on NPO Radio 2 here:

Setareh and Yoeri’s paper published in Nature Materials

This work describes a novel device that connect living cells with organic neuromorphic materials. We were able to demonstrate a memory effect based on the neurotransmitter dopamine released by cells. The research was done in collaboration with IIT Italy (group of Francesca Santoro) and Stanford University (group of Alberto Salleo).  Find the paper here and free to read here. 

Enhancement-mode transistors paper was published in Advanced Materials

Scott Keene and Tom van der Pol showed that adding amine-based de-dopants to PEDOT:PSS devices transforms them into enhancement-mode transistors. This work, which was performed in collaboration with Alberto Salleo at Stanford University and Rene Janssen at the department of Chemistry, was published in Advanced Materials.  Additionally, Advanced Science News wrote a news article about our work.

News and View paper published in Nature Materials

Yoeri’s paper “Lowering the threshold for bioelectronics” was published in Nature Materials. The News and View article highlights the work by Dion Khodagholy and collegues at Columbia University who have developed a high-speed, high-gain enhancement-mode ion-gated transistor that shows promise for low-power chronically implanted bioelectronic systems.

New Group Members

Since the beginning of the academic year, two new members have joined the group: Dr. Yanxi Zhang and Ms. Imke Krauhausen. Welcome to both! For more details about their respective backgrounds and research interests, see the people section.

E-MRS Symposium on Neuro-inspired information processing

Together with Paschalis Gkoupidenis from the Max Planck institute in Mainz, we are organising a symposium at EMRS Spring Meeting in Strasbourg 2020, covering neuromorphic engineering and devices, all the way to bio-inspired sensing and bioelectronics. The symposium has a great line-up of confirmed speakers. For more details see:
