Nanoengineers develop basis for electronics that stretch at the molecular level
Nanoengineers at the University of California, San Diego are asking what might be possible if semiconductor materials were flexible and stretchable without sacrificing electronic function?
Fractal wire patterns enhance stretchability of electronic devices
Researchers develop stretchable wire-shaped supercapacitor
(Phys.org) —Advances in flexible and stretchable electronics have prompted researchers to explore ways to create stretchable supercapacitors—robust energy storage devices—to power these and other devices.
Stretchable lithium-ion battery can twist, bend, return to normal shape (w/ Video)
(Phys.org)—Northwestern University's Yonggang Huang and the University of Illinois' John A. Rogers are the first to demonstrate a stretchable lithium-ion battery—a flexible device capable of powering ...
Under the microscope #7
In this video Dr Ingrid Graz shows us a thin layer of gold on top of rubber. Cracks in the gold allow it to stretch and we can use this for stretchable electronics.
UCLA engineers create fully stretchable OLED
uFSRFE: Stretchable electronics report how you feel
(PhysOrg.com) -- Electronics that can be bent and stretched might sound like science fiction. But Uppsala researcher Zhigang Wu, working with collaborators, has devised a wireless sensor that can stand to ...
New stretchable electronics device promises to make cardiac ablation therapy simpler
In an improvement over open-heart surgery, cardiologists now use catheters to eliminate damaged heart tissue in certain patients, such as those with arrhythmias. But this, too, can be a long and painful procedure ...
Peeling stickers may lead to stretchable electronics
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.
