Within the context of the current internship, the tasks will be focused on thermoforming of a functional thermoplastic applicable for conformable electronics (PET/Cu based). The functionalization of thermoplastics will be supported by the expertise of the Optics department from IMT Atlantique. The objectives consist in:
1) Thermo-mechanical characterization of provided functional complex plates;
2) Assessment of the thermoformability limits of the material based on full-field strain measurements;
3) Optimizing thermoforming conditions based on finite element simulations;
4) Suggesting guidelines to design an adaptive mould for shaping functional complex plates.
