Making environmental sensors on plastic foil
The driving forces for organic and printed electronics are the display and lightning, solar cell, battery and electronics (e.g., RFID) industries1. The complete technology chain is being established in the fields of materials preparation, processing and characterization equipment, and production. Over the last decade, there has been a significant increase in the efforts dedicated to the development and implementation of electronic components on flexible and stretchable substrates for other types of application, such assensing, and notable results have been obtained by different research groups2-8. This technology could result in sensors being introduced to new settings, by significantly reducing their production cost and by adding new functionalities.
