Soft Nanomembrane Electronics for Medicine, Healthcare, and Human-Machine Interfaces

About this Research Topic

Soft, functional nanomaterials enable comfortable, low-profile nanoelectronic systems, including sensors, stimulators, and actuators, for applications in medicine, healthcare, and human-machine interfaces. The engineering of materials that provide a very small form factor when integrated with functional components makes extremely flexible and stretchable electronics, which can overcome the current limitations of existing electronics based on rigid, planar materials. In addition, soft electronics-enabled biosystems offer compliant, ergonomic interactions and tissue-conformal lamination with a human body for highly sensitive detection of physiological signals.

This Research Topic focuses on the use of soft, hybrid, functional nanomaterials to design and develop unobtrusive, multifunctional wearable and implantable electronics for biomedical applications. We aim to advance fundamental knowledge and technology in human health monitoring, disease diagnostics, brain-computer interactions, and human-machine interfaces.

Papers focusing on the following topics (but not limited to) are welcome:

• New soft nanomaterials
• Flexible/stretchable nanosensors
• Soft actuators


Keywords: Nanodevices, Soft materials, Flexible systems, Wearable electronics, Implantable electronics


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
