Flexible and Stretchable Electronics
Flexible and stretchable electronics are getting tremendous attention as future electronics due to flexibility and light weight especially application in wearable electronics. Flexible electronics are usually fabricated on heat sensitive flexible substrates such as plastic, fabric or even papers while stretchable electronics are ussally fabricated elastomeric substrate to survive large deformation in the practical application scenarios. Therefore, the successful fabrication of flexible electronics needs a low temperature processible novel materials and novel processing development because traditional materials and processes are not compatible with flexible/stretchable electronics. Huge technical challenges and opportunities are behind this dramatically changes from the perspective of new material design and processing, new fabrication technique, large deformation mechanics, new application development and so on. Here, we would like to invite the talented researchers to join us on this new vital field that have a potential to reshape our future life, by contributing the wisdoms from your perspective.
