Fully Screen-Printed, Multicolor, and Stretchable Electroluminescent Displays for Epidermal Electronics.ACS Appl Mater Interfaces. 2020 Oct 21; 12(42):47902-47910.AA
A stretchable alternating current electroluminescent display seamlessly combines the light-emitting capabilities with mechanical compliance, which offers exciting opportunities for applications in wearable gadgets, soft robots, and fashion designs. The widespread adaption to deformable forms of optoelectronics is currently impeded by the tedious and labor-intensive fabrication process. This study reports an efficient and scalable procedure to create a fully screen-printed, multicolor, and stretchable electroluminescent display. The as-prepared device exhibits excellent deformability and low-voltage operation. The practical implementation is demonstrated by creating a wearable sound-synchronized sensing system with an epidermal display responsive to the rhythm of music. The ink formulation and printing procedure developed here pave the way for convenient fabrication of stretchable electronic devices.
