Flexible Thin-Film Electronics

Alessandro Volta created the first electrical circuit in 1800 using salt-water solutions connected by pieces of metal. Volta went on to invent many electronic systems, most notably the Voltaic Pile (the first battery). [1] Fast-forward and electronics are ubiquitous throughout our lives. Most electronic devices are composed of rigid circuit boards containing electronic components (e.g., transistors, resistors, and capacitors), and printed metallic interconnects. Now, flexible electronics are currently being developed for next-generation devices. Flexible electronics can be used for an incomprehensible number of applications, [2] but some include, foldable displays, conformal photovoltaics, batteries, power generators, wearable sensors, soft robotics, and bioelectronic interface applications.
