Foldable Paper Electronics by Direct-Write Laser Patterning [BPN860]
Paper electronics have been a popular subject in recent years, with various works
concentrating on the printing of additive materials on papers. Here, we show a drastically
different approach by a direct-write laser patterning process on paper. Innovative claims are:
(1) direct conversion of non-conductive paper to conductor by laser; (2) a variety of foldable
architectures and devices using the as-fabricated paper electronics; and (3) among various
possible basic device applications, we show a foldable triboelectricity generator and a folded
supercapacitor as the potential paper-based power source for paper electronics, a wireless
humidity sensor, and a heavy metal ion detector as working components.
