For years, the field of flexible and printed electronics has been seen as a great opportunity for new products and applications that will play an increasingly important role in our everyday lives. This promise is starting to be fulfilled.
In particular, sensors are one of the most prominent early successes. These sensors are appearing in numerous markets ranging from medical, airplanes and automobiles to packaging and cosmetics, just to name a few. Glucose strips were an early success, but now these sensors are finding opportunities in more commercial and industrial spaces.
In “Flexible Hybrid Electronics and Sensors,” beginning on page 13, I highlight a few of these successes, notably L’Oreal’s My UV Patch skin sensor and the work being done at Boeing in developing sensors for aircraft. In addition, industry leaders throughout the supply chain are reporting projects and products that are in the works.
This is also the case with the interest in data log
