Skin-Like Electronics

Electronic Skin and Advanced Prosthetics
Programmable on-Skin Electronics

Multifunctional on-Skin Based Electronics

Here, based on a novel printing approach, we fabricated a substrate-free multifunctional-sensing system that can be directly printed onto human skin. Furthermore, the resulting device functions as an on-skin biofunctional power source and a multifunctional physiological sensing platform that can detect pressure, temperature, and hydration, providing skin-like electronics with high mechanical durability.


Findings about this device are under review at a high-profile journal.

Technology Readiness Level (TRL) is 3

So far, a proof of concept of a device has been demonstrated and in terms of technology readiness level (TRL) this technology is at level 3. On the other hand, future work could include more development of the on-skin sensor performance and integrability through extensively studying of the device biocompatibility and its inflammation effect, as well as optimizing printing parameters and the device structure to more skin-like. Typically, this would be done as part of an R&D project with a company that is necessarily interested in commercializing this technology.


The project will take 3 years and about 400K$ in resources. The facilities to accomplish that are available.

Energy Smart Skin

High Robust Energy Smart Skin​

Here, a new class of printed smart skin (SSE) with multisensing properties and energy conversion capability using a simple, and low-effective printing techniques is demonstrated. The resulting self-powering SSE functions as a human- monitoring device by detecting a variety of external stimuli, as well as an ultra-flexible biomechanical energy harvester. Such smart skin devices promise for broad applications in the next‐generation of functional wearables for human-machine interface, soft robotics, and skin prosthetics.

Technology Readiness Level (TRL) is 3

Until now, a proof of concept of a device has been demonstrated and in terms of technology readiness level (TRL) this technology is at level 3. On the other hand, future work could include more development of the on-skin sensor performance and integrability through extensively studying of the device toxicity, as well as optimizing printing parameters. Typically, this would be done as part of an R&D project with a company that is necessarily interested in commercializing this technology.


The project will take 3 years and about 350K$ in resources. The facilities to accomplish that are available.
