During the past decades, the paradigm for technological development for future electronics has been progressing towards human-friendly technology which considers ease of use, wearing sensation, portability, human sensibility, and smart communication with surrounding environments. Soft electronics is the most promising next-generation technology for flexible and stretchable electronics through the implementation of soft nanomaterials. The development of novel soft nanomaterials, conceptually novel and advanced devices, and highly efficient processing platforms is essential for the realization of soft electronics.
Papers published in this thematic series will introduce and review the recent advances in the synthesis of novel soft nanomaterials, device design, fabrication processes and novel applications of nanotechnology-based soft electronics.
