There is a trend in electronics towards becoming shapeable (flexible, stretchable or printable), which allows electronic components to be arbitrarily reshaped after fabrication. This unique feature offers new unexplored functionalities for the markets of consumer electronics and eMobility. Shapeable electronics and optoelectronics have been developed already for a few years.
Very recently, we added a new member to this family - the shapeable magnetic sensorics, which pave the way towards the development of a unique class of devices with important functionality being not only shapeable and fast, but also with the ability to react and respond to a magnetic field. Shapeable magnetic sensor devices could enable the fabrication of, e.g. health monitoring systems, where large-angle folding of the micrometer-sized functional elements is a crucial prerequisite for a successful implementation.
In the ERC project SMaRT we aim to develop shapeable magnetoelectronics to the industry-ready product and integrate these magnetic field sensorics into flexible large area multifunctional devices consisting of flexible batteries, communication modules and different types of sensing elements, e.g. environmental, chemical, temperature.
