Better biomedical devices, wearable displays

For the first time, researchers have fabricated light-guiding structures known as waveguides just over one micron wide in a clear silicone commonly used for biomedical applications. The tiny, flexible waveguides can be used to make light-based devices such as biomedical sensors and endoscopes that are smaller and more complex than currently possible.

Silk adhesive paves the way for epidermal electronics

Silk adhesive paves the way for epidermal electronics

Producing effective epidermal electronics requires a strong, biocompatible interface between a biological surface and a sensor. A research team has employed a calcium-modified silk fibroin as a biocompatible and strong adhesive. This technology led to the development of epidermal electronics with strong adhesion for patients who need drug injections and physiological monitoring over a long time.
