Edited by the leaders in the field, with chapters from highly renowned international researchers, this is the first coherent overview of the latest in silicon nanomembrane research. As such, it focuses on the fundamental and applied aspects of silicon nanomembranes, ranging from synthesis and manipulation to manufacturing, device integration and system level applications, including uses in bio-integrated electronics, three-dimensional integrated photonics, solar cells, and transient electronics. The first part describes in detail the fundamental physics and materials science involved, as well as synthetic approaches and assembly and manufacturing strategies, while the second covers the wide range of device applications and system level demonstrators already achieved, with examples taken from electronics and photonics and from biomedicine and energy. John A. Rogers holds a Swanlund Chair at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA. His research includes fundamental and applied aspects of nano- and molecular-scale fabrication as well as materials and patterning techniques for unusual electronic and photonic devices, with an emphasis on bio-integrated and bio-inspired systems. He has published more than 400 papers, and is an inventor of over 80 patents and patent applications, more than 50 of which are licensed or in active use by large companies and startups that he has co-founded. Jong-Hyun Ahn is Underwood distinguished professor in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Yonsei University, Korea. His research interest focuses on the synthesis and properties of graphene, two-dimensional materials, and Si nanomembranes, and their application in flexible electronics. Jong-Hyun Ahn has authored more than ninety scientific publications and is an inventor of more than fifty patents and has received numerous scientific awards, including the National Young Scientist Award and the IEEE George Smith Award.
