Printed Stretchable Circuits: A breakthrough – Presented by Mahmoud Tavakoli, Institute of Systems and Robotics, at the 3D Printing Electronics Conference, on January 22, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

In this talk I will cover a series of novel methods and materials for printing stretchable circuits. We created the first ever method for inkjet printing of highly stretchable circuits, and then we adapted this method for laser printing or screen printing methods. Circuits are instantly sintered at room temperature, without requiring temperature or light pulses, and at the same time the circuits become highly stretchable. I will show applications of this method for rapid prototyping of ultrathin e-skin, as an electronic tattoo for biomonitoring or circuits that are transferred over 3D objects to enable tactile input, proximity detection, pressure detection or other applications. Finally i will present a stretchable conductive ink and adhesive which allows direct writing of stretchable circuits.
