Soft Science is dedicated to rapidly reviewing and publishing high-quality research in the broad field of mechanically soft, deformable and deployable materials, devices and systems. Emphasis is laid on the impact, depth and originality of new concepts, observations, manufacturing, materials, structures, devices, and systems of the forefront of engineering and applied sciences.
The topical areas of interest include:
Manufacturing, properties and applications of soft materials, structures, electronics and systems;
Soft, flexible, stretchable, wearable electronics, optoelectronics, sensors, biomedicine and energy devices;
Conformable and deployable electronics;
Soft robotics, smart skins, and human machine interfaces;
Soft materials, smart materials, and composites;
Soft structures and architecture materials;
Organic, inorganic and hybrid thin films, materials and devices;
Additive manufacturing (e.g. 3D, 4D printing) of soft materials, structures and devices;
Printed electronics and systems.
