UMD Researchers Strong Showing with a Best Demo Award at the 2022 UIST Conference
Researchers at the University of Maryland recently received recognition for their innovative work on developing a set of rapid prototyping techniques to fabricate high-resolution, flexible circuits on demand using a fiber laser engraver.
Out of the 63 demos, the UMD team—co-led by Zeyu Yan and Anup Sathya, along with Sahra Yusuf, Jyh-Ming Lien, and assistant professor Huaishu Peng—received the “People’s Choice Best Demo Award” for their paper titled Fibercuit: Prototyping High-Resolution Flexible and Kirigami Circuits with a Fiber Laser Engraver at the 2022 International Conference on User Interface Software and Technology (UIST) held in Bend, Oregon, USA. In addition to the low-cost and high-resolution circuit prototyping method, the study also introduces a software interface that lets an end user design custom circuits on kirigami shapes with real-time simulation.
