Illustration of the laser fabricated device on the skin upon deformation with various sensing modules and a stretchable wideband antenna/rectenna for wireless communication and ambient radio frequency energy harvesting. Reprinted from a manuscript under review.

Schematic and demonstration of directly fabricating transient and long-lasting devices on planar and freeform substrates. Reprinted from a manuscript under review.

The design concept of the soft body area sensor network: The paper-/fabric-based flexible printed circuit board on clothing can integrate wireless data and power transmission modules (e.g., Bluetooth or near-field communication module), along with commercial off-the-shelf chips for extended collecting and processing data (green box). The red box illustrates the simple process of preparing the directly printed on-body sensors sintered at room temperature. Reprinted from a manuscript under review.
