Distant Dream “Stretchable Electronics”: JKU Scientists Obtain First Results

While the idea of stretchable electronics may seem like a distant dream, mobile device manufacturers have clearly indicated a desire to move in the direction of integrating mobile devices into clothing or to use as accessories, such as bracelets. These ideas would require stretchable electronics, including compliant batteries in order to function properly. Univ.Prof. Dr. Siegfried Bauer of the JKU Linz is responding to the trend. He and his team are currently focusing on research to create stretchable batteries, particularly for sensor technology and input devices. This field of research is a new frontier and the JKU team has obtained a first set of results.
