Scientists create colour-changing electronic SKIN

Posted by in categories: electronics, materials

Researchers from Tsinghua University in Beijing have now developed a new type of electronic skin, with a colour change easily seen at just 0–10 per cent strain.

The material is made from graphene — a form of pure carbon that is 200 times stronger than steel.

Two layers of graphene are included — a highly-resistive strain sensor, alongside a stretchable organic electrochromic device (ECD) that changes colour when a current is applied.
