Electrode materials for wearable electronics

Research output: Chapter in book / Conference proceedingConference article published in proceeding or bookAcademic researchpeer-review


Wearable electronics has received increasing interest in recent years because of its attractive applications in communications, actuations, energy, data management, and biological sensors for medical purposes. [1-5] One of the biggest challenges remained to solve is the fabrication of durable, flexible, stretchable, and even washable electrode materials which are inevitable to all wearable electronic devices. This paper will introduce two types of electrode materials recently developed in our laboratory. The first one is a highly flexible and even stretchable metallic textile. The second one is a graphene composite thin film which can be used as transparent electrode in organic optoelectronic devices.
