Scalable Fabrication of Free-Standing, Stretchable CNTs/TPE Ultrathin Composite Film for Skin Adhesive Epidermal Electronics

Abstract

Wearable electronics have drawn extensive interests on account of their potential applications in smart human-machine interfaces, wearable human-health monitors and mimicing biological organs. However, it is still challenging for scalable and cost-effective fabrication of self-adhesive and easily transferred flexible ultrathin film. Herein, a simple and high-efficient strategy was proposed for an ultrathin, self-standing and self-adhesive macroscopic CNTs/TPE hybrid film at the air/water interface. Due to the distinctive ultrathin feature, the obtained film can be directly attached to skin surface for real-time human physiological behaviour detection. Additionally, the free-standing hybrid film can be empolyed for the effective detection of tiny airflow changes and even acoustic vibration.
