Two steps closer to flexible, powerful, fast bioelectronic devices

Two steps closer to flexible, powerful, fast bioelectronic devices

Researchers have designed biocompatible ion-driven soft transistors that can perform real-time neurologically relevant computation and a mixed-conducting particulate composite that allows creation of electronic components out of a single material. These have promise for bioelectronic devices that are fast, sensitive, biocompatible, soft, and flexible, with long-term stability in physiological environments such as the human body. …
