Recent technological progress towards the application of the wearable devices shed light on the development of flexible electrodes. So far, various technical approaches for the flexible electrodes to be improved mechanical and electrical reliability have been reported. However, transferring the lab-scale processing to industrialization is still limited due to the complex and tedious processing steps for the preparation of flexible electrodes.
Herein, we introduce facile engineering steps to prepare the flexible electrodes, which is consisted of carbon/polymer composites for the potential application to wearable devices. Simply, the composites were screen-printed on metal based sacrificial substrates and then, were transferred to the polymer matrix. The prepared composites show the electrical reliability within 10% up to 30% elongation. Also, stepwise increase of the electrical resistance was observed depending on the degree of elongation, which can be further applied as strain sensor.
