Researchers from Tokyo University led by Professor Takao Someya and Dr. Tomoyuki Yokota created an ultrathin and ultra flexible organic e-skin that supports PLED and OLED displays.
This will be a remarkable beginning in electronic skin displays that believed to be the major leap in wearable technology.
Thorough research and tests give way for its stableness and further development to ensure stability when exposed to air.
Tokyo researchers created this high-quality protective film using alternating layers of Silicon Oxynitride and Parylene.
The film collects and keep oxygen and vapor from passing through and can be attached to ITO electrodes used in flat-panel displays and smart windows.
The material reduces heat generation and consumes less power, which can be utilized for medical use like for monitoring pulse rate or blood oxygen levels when it is attached onto skin.
“What would the world be like if we had displays that could adhere to our bodies and even show our emotions or level of stress or unease,” asks Professor Someya.
