Latest Stretchable electronics Stories
Medical researchers foresee a time, in the not-too-distant future, when medical monitoring devices become integrated into the human body with much less interruption and discomfort for all.
Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new method for creating elastic conductors made of carbon nanotubes, which will contribute to large-scale production of the material for use in a new generation of elastic electronic devices.
Imprinting electronic circuitry on backplanes that are both flexible and stretchable promises to revolutionize a number of industries and make “smart devices” nearly ubiquitous.
In an improvement over open-heart surgery, cardiologists now use catheters to eliminate damaged heart tissue in certain patients, such as those with arrhythmias.
Researchers at North Carolina State University have created the first coils of silicon nanowire on a substrate that can be stretched to more than double their original length.
Biocompatible electronics could enable new surgical applications
Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers are developing a method to precisely control the fabrication of stretchable electronics. The scientists said stretchable electronics would enable electronic devices to be embedded in clothing, surgical gloves or other flexible materials.
A study of stickers peeling from windows could lead to a new way to precisely control the fabrication of stretchable electronics, according to a team of researchers including one at MIT.
