: Next-generation wearable electronics will need to be mechanically flexible and stretchable such that they can be conformally attached onto the human body. Photodetectors that are available in today's market are based on rigid inorganic crystalline materials and they have limited mechanical flexibility. In contrast, photodetectors based on organic polymers and molecules have emerged as promising alternatives due to their inherent mechanical softness, ease of processing, tunable optoelectronic p...

Abstract In this study, a newly fluorescent ZnSe quantum dots (QDs) with ion imprinting technology was firstly realized on the three-dimensional (3D) rotary paper–based microfluidic chip platform which can be used to realize specific and multiplexed detection of Cadmium ions (Cd2+) and Lead ions (Pb2+). Compared to CdTe quantum dots, ZnSe quantum dots are less toxic and more environmental friendly. In addition, this design improved the portability of the device by transferred the liquid phase of...

This work illustrates the feasibility of a microneedle based electrochemical biosensor for continuous glucose monitoring. The device consists of three silk/D-sorbitol pyramidal microneedles integrated with platinum (Pt) and silver (Ag) wires and immobilized glucose selective enzyme (glucose oxidase, GOD) during fabrication. The silk/D-sorbitol composite can provide a biocompatible environment for the enzyme molecules. The break strength can be controlled by the ratio of silk to D-sorbitol, which...

Abstract The skin, as the largest and most accessible organ in the human body, contains biofluids rich in biomarkers useful not only in diagnosis and monitoring of diseases, but also in profiling an individual’s wellbeing. Advancements in micro- and nanotechnology research have underpinned the development of multifunctional wearable sensing devices. Those sensors may allow monitoring of physiological parameters from different skin sections such as epidermis, dermis and hypodermis by sampling var...

Flexible wearable sensors are emerging as a next-generation tool to collect information from human body and surroundings in a smart, friendly and real-time manner. A new class of such sensors with various functionality and amenability for the human body is essential for this goal. Unfortunately, the majority of the wearable sensors reported so far in the literature were of signal function (mostly strain sensor) and just a prototype without thinking of continuous mass production. In this paper, w...

Abstract This study presents a simple, inexpensive and environment-friendly fabrication strategy for microfluidic paper-based analytical devices which can resist the penetration of surfactant solutions and organic solvents, by using water-based polyurethane acrylate via UV light curing. The filter paper’s barrier created using cured PUA could withstand surfactant solutions (10 wt%, CTAB, SDS and Triton X-100) and organic solvents (methanol, isopropanol, DMF, DMSO, etc). This is very useful for an...

Abstract Paper-based electronics is an emerging technology that is attracting attention for its high flexibility, ease of recycling/disposal, low manufacturing cost, and scalability. In this work, graphene flakes dispersion was coated on the mulberry papers through a simple Meyer-rod coating process. The characteristics of the mulberry paper-based graphene strain sensor (MPGSS) were systematically researched by investigating the electrical performance with strain, mechanical strength, flexibilit...

There is an increasing demand for measuring respiratory rate (RR) to monitor the progression of clinical events such as cardiac arrest or during the admission to the intensive care unit (ICU). Current methods of respiration monitoring are complex, invasive, expensive and therefore require alternative techniques. In this paper, we utilized wearable and flexible technology to develop humidity sensors for long-term continuous monitoring of respiration. Using manual drawing and printing techniques, ...
