Microfibers: Bioinspired Composite Microfibers for Skin Adhesion and Signal Amplification of Wearable Sensors (Adv. Mater. 28/2017)

Microfibers: Bioinspired Composite Microfibers for Skin Adhesion and Signal Amplification of Wearable Sensors (Adv. Mater. 28/2017)
Metin Sitti, Dirk-M. Drotlef, Morteza Amjadi, Muhammad Yunusa
In article number 1701353, Metin Sitti and co-workers develop bioinspired skin-adhesives composed of microfibrills decorated with conformal and mushroom-shaped tips for strong attachment to dry and wet skin. A high skin-adhesion strength of 18 kPa, along with highly enhanced signal-to-noise quality of integrated wearable strain sensors are achieved by excellent shape adaptation and microfibrillar design of skin-adhesive films.
