Special Issue Introduction

The advent of flexible and stretchable electronics has driven rapid progresses in soft bio-integrated electronics and soft bio-inspired electronics, such as deformable types of personalized medicinal devices, mobile electronic systems, and soft robotics. The high-quality biotic-abiotic interfacing is the utmost criteria in the bio-integrated electronics for the precise recording of bio-signals and proper feedback stimulations. Considering the soft and curvilinear features of the biological tissues, the bio-integrated electronic devices and their composing materials should be soft and deformable to avoid mechanical mismatch and ensure conformal interfaces between the device and the tissue. In this regard, various nanoscale materials, which feature extreme deformability, have been employed. Besides, such deformable features as well as high device performances based on high-quality nanomaterials have enabled the development of soft bio-inspired electronics with unconventional form factors and human-friendly applications. This special issue covers recent progresses in the flexible and stretchable electronics based on nanotechnology, ranging from wearable and implantable devices, flexible actuators and robotics, to electronic skins and electronic eyes. The future of flexible and stretchable electronics based on nanotechnology is extremely bright in consideration of these rapid advances in nanoscale materials, deformable device designs, application-specific system integration, and their practical applications.
