Biogel for Soft Electronics Developed

Biogel for Soft Electronics Developed

Researchers introduce an elastic material made out of a non-polluting mix of gelatin and other edible ingredients. What is so special about the new bio-gel? It is elastic, flexible and easy to bend as well as sufficiently stable, allowing it to be combined with electronic components. This discovery forges new paths in the development of soft robotics.

New Electronic Material for Wearables and Soft Robots

New Electronic Material for Wearables and Soft Robots

Imagine a flexible digital screen that heals itself when it cracks, or a light-emitting robot that locates survivors in dark, dangerous environments or carries out farming and space exploration tasks. A novel material developed could turn these ideas into reality.

Riddled With Holes: Making Flexible Thin-Film Electronics More Durable

Riddled With Holes: Making Flexible Thin-Film Electronics More Durable

The prospect of the widespread commercialization and application of flexible electronics has kept researchers worldwide searching for ingenious ways to enhance their performance and durability. From wearable smart devices to solar cells and health sensors, flexible electronics holds much promise in many engineering fields. Unfortunately, flexible devices are usually as fragile as they look; mechanical deformations, such as bending, can induce the formation and propagation of microscopic cracks that ultimately cause devices to fail.

Flexible and Stretchable Single Crystal Electronic Systems

Flexible and Stretchable Single Crystal Electronic Systems

Researchers have discovered that certain crystals are more flexible and stretchable compared to current materials used for electronic applications. These new materials could therefore be used for making sensors and in robotics.

Flexible hybrid electronics: Towards flexible integrated circuits

Flexible hybrid electronics: Towards flexible integrated circuits

We define flexible hybrid electronics (FHE) as "Devices that combine the flexibility and low cost of printed plastic film substrates with the performance of semiconductor devices." This requires a combination of printed and non-printed functionality.

Sweat Powered Electronic Skin

Sweat Powered Electronic Skin

The e-skin, made from soft, flexible rubber, can be embedded with sensors that monitor information like heart rate, body temperature, levels of blood sugar and metabolic byproducts that are indicators of health, and even the nerve signals that control our muscles. It does so without the need for a battery, as it runs solely on biofuel cells powered by one of the body's own waste products.

Stretchable Lithium-Ion Battery Based on Micro-Honeycomb Structure

Stretchable Lithium-Ion Battery Based on Micro-Honeycomb Structure

The microscale reentrant-honeycomb shaped, graphene-based electrode is characterized by an accordion-like structural stretchability. A stretchable gel electrolyte and stretchable separator are also developed for all-component stretchable full cells, with applications for future stretchable devices.
