Flexible nanosensors for wearable devices

25 febrero 2015

Scientists will now be able to fabricate optical nanosensors capable of sticking to uneven surfaces and biological surfaces, like human skin. This result can boost the use of wearable devices to monitor parameters such as temperature, breath and heart pressure. This is a low cost technology, as the researchers use materials like standard polycarbonate compact disks, aluminum films and adhesive tapes.
