Hydrogel Electronics Conform to Fit

Hydrogel Electronics Conform to Fit
Flexible electronics printed on hydrogels could open the door to a new generation of flexible sensors able to conform to a wide array of surfaces and shapes.

The hydrogel-based electronics were created by a team from the Korea Institute of Science and Technology by first printing a circuit in nano ink on a transfer mold. That circuit can then be fully transferred to a hydrogel, where the nano ink will maintain conductivity even when flexed or stretched.

To demonstrate the technology, the team transferred the circuits directly onto a glove to create sensors able to detect finger motions and measure the pulse in the wrist.
