研究の背景 Background


Conventional electronic devices utilize hard, opaque electrodes and semiconductors. They make it difficult to obtain natural biological response data under attachment to the human body, damage the object, and are difficult to visually observe the object. To solve these problems, establishment of fundamental technologies will lead to the creation of next-generation personal sensors (sheet-type sensors) that fit into the human body through the development of electronic devices that are flexible like human skin, transparent like water, and can be clearly observed even by non-experts.

研究の目標 Outcome


This research aims to construct flexible and transparent sheet-type sensors that can process minute electrical signals by integrating functional materials, mainly organic and inorganic nanomaterials, into electronic devices. Sheet-type sensors will enable early detection of abnormalities in people (medical and healthcare), agriculture, and infrastructure structures without damaging the objects. Furthermore, efficiency improvements leading to real-time situation assessment and behavior change can be achieved by sharing the results in the cloud, which are obtained through measurement in natural conditions.

Through research and development of multifunctional and high-performance electronic device materials in terms of lightweight, thin-film, printable, flexible, transparent, autonomy, etc., we will create healthcare sensors for the human/agricultural/infrastructure fields and study their application to sensor systems.
