Wearable electronics has enabled devices that can monitor humans in real time for continuous healthcare management. For broader applications, organic electronics offers significant advantages over conventional silicon technologies, due to the intrinsic bendability and versatile sensing functionalities of organic materials. However, wearable electronics relies on batteries and calls for cheap and disposable devices. To fill these gaps, I have developed bendable organic transistors with ultralow power consumption (<0.1% in conventional approaches) and little fabrication cost (approximately 2p/chip). My findings in a series of publications have indicated the exceptional capability and potential of this research for emerging wearable physiological monitoring applications.
