Tattoo-like epidermal sensors are an emerging class of truly wearable electronics, owing to their thinness and softness. While most of them are based on thin metal films, a silicon membrane, or nanoparticle-based printable inks, we report sub-micrometer thick, multimodal electronic tattoo sensors that are made of graphene. The graphene electronic tattoo (GET) is designed as filamentary serpentines and fabricated by a cost- and time-effective "wet transfer, dry patterning" method. It has a total…

Multilayer Graphene Epidermal Electronic Skin.

A multilayer graphene epidermal electronic skin based on laser scribing graphene, whose patterns are programmable, and a physical model is established to explain the relationship between the crack directions and electrical characteristics are demonstrated.

Ionic Network Based on Dynamic Ionic Liquids for Electronic Tattoo Application.

A dynamic ionic liquid is prepared which is ideally suited for making an electronic tattoo with these challenging features at the same time, and an intrinsically flexible electronic tattoo can be firmly attached to human skin with negligible irritation.

Fabrication, characterization and applications of graphene electronic tattoos.

This protocol showcases how GETs can be applied onto the human body and how they can be used to obtain a variety of biopotentials, including electroencephalogram (brain waves), electrocardiogram (heart activity), electromyogram (muscle activity), as well as monitoring of body temperature and hydration.

Fully Untethered Battery-free Biomonitoring Electronic Tattoo with Wireless Energy Harvesting

This work demonstrates a quickly deployable, untethered, battery-free, ultrathin (~5 μm) passive “electronic tattoo” that interfaces with the human skin for acquisition and transmission of physiological data and demonstrates an excellent signal to noise ratio, better than the gold-standard Ag/AgCl electrodes.

Reduced Graphene Oxide Tattoo as Wearable Proximity Sensor

A graphene-based tattoo sensor is presented for proximity sensing, employing the principle of electrostatic gating and demonstrating a remarkable change in resistance upon exposure to objects surrounded with static charge on them.

Stable and Biocompatible Carbon Nanotube Ink Mediated by Silk Protein for Printed Electronics

It is demonstrated that the SSCNT ink can be used for fabricating versatile circuits on textile, paper, and plastic films through various techniques and shows stability up to months, which can be attributed to the formation of sericin-CNT (SSCNT) hybrid through non-covalent interactions.

A highly conductive self-assembled multilayer graphene nanosheet film for electronic tattoos in the applications of human electrophysiology and strain sensing.

A multilayer graphene nanosheet film (MGNF) with high conductivity was prepared by the Marangoni self-assembly for using in tattoo dry electrodes (TDEs) and in a graphene tattoo strain sensor (GTSS).

Large-Area Synthesis of High-Quality and Uniform Graphene Films on Copper Foils

It is shown that graphene grows in a self-limiting way on copper films as large-area sheets (one square centimeter) from methane through a chemical vapor deposition process, and graphene film transfer processes to arbitrary substrates showed electron mobilities as high as 4050 square centimeters per volt per second at room temperature.
