Book Description

Sensors for Stretchable Electronics in Nanotechnology discusses the fabrication of semiconducting materials, simple and cost-effective synthesis, and unique mechanisms that enable the fabrication of fully elastic electronic devices that can tolerate high strain. It reviews specific applications that directly benefit from highly compliant electronics, including transistors, photonic devices, and sensors.

  • Discusses ultra-flexible electronics, highlighting its upcoming significance for the industrial-scale production of electronic goods
  • Outlines the role of nanomaterials in fabricating flexible and multifunctional sensors and their applications in sensor technologies
  • Covers graphene-based flexible and stretchable strain sensors
  • Details various applications including wearable electronics, chemical sensors for detecting humidity, environmental hazards, pathogens, and biological warfare agents, and biosensors for detecting vital signals

This book is a valuable resource for students, scientists, and professionals working in the research areas of sensor technologies, nanotechnology, materials science, chemistry, physics, biological and medical sciences, the healthcare industry, environmental science, and technology.
