Article
Full-text available
Edible electronics will enable systems that can be safely ingested and degraded in the human body after completing their function, such as sensing physiological parameters or biological markers in the gastrointestinal tract, without risk of retention or need of recollection. The same systems are potentially suitable for directly tagging food, monit...
Article
Full-text available
In the present study, we have produced a sodium carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) hydrogel from a bacterial cellulose etherification reaction with chloroacetic acid in an alkaline medium. Bacterial cellulose (BC) was synthesized via economical and environmentally friendly methods using the Gluconacetobacter xylinus bacterium. After purification, freeze-...

Improper freezing of food causes food waste and negatively impacts the environment. In this work, we propose a device that can detect defrosting events by coupling a temperature-activated galvanic cell with an ionochromic cell, which is activated by the release of ions during current flow. Both the components of the sensor are fabricated through si...

Oral drug administration provides a convenient and patient‐compliant way for drug delivery, especially for chronic diseases and prolonged pharmacological treatments. However, due to the repetitiveness of such therapeutic approach, the patients are led to neglect/forget the therapy affecting the healthcare delivery. Indeed, the non‐adherence to phar...
Article
Measles Sensing Measles is one of the most infectious airborne viruses worldwide, and it is still common in developing countries. In article number 2201958, Marco Cecchini and co‐workers present a point‐of‐care biosensing lab‐on‐a‐chip based on surface‐acoustic‐waves for detecting measles virions in human saliva. The presented findings may serve as...
Article
Full-text available
Measles is one of the most infectious airborne viruses worldwide. With a basic reproduction rate between 12–18, this virus is six times more infectious than the SARS‐CoV‐2 Alpha variant and similar to the SARS‐CoV‐2 Omicron variant. Even though a cheap and effective vaccine is available, measles is still common in developing countries. To date, spo...
Article
Full-text available
Edible electronics will facilitate point‐of‐care testing through safe devices digested/degraded in the body/environment after performing a specific function. This technology, to thrive, requires a library of materials that are the basic building blocks for eatable platforms. Edible electrical conductors fabricated with green methods and at a large...

Edible electronics will facilitate point-of-care testing through safe and cheap devices that are digested or degraded in the body or environment after performing a specific function. Its thrive depends on creating a library of materials that are the basic building blocks for eatable technologies. Edible electrical conductors fabricated with green m...
Article
Full-text available
In this work, a new flexible and biocompatible microfluidic pH sensor based on surface acoustic waves (SAWs) is presented. The device consists of polyethylene naphthalate (PEN) as a flexible substrate on which aluminum nitride (AlN) has been deposited as a piezoelectric material. The fabrication of suitable interdigitated transducers (IDTs) generat...

The development of wearable technology increasingly requires bendable sensing devices operating across multiple domains for opto-electro-mechanical and biochemical transduction. Piezoelectric materials integrated into flexible and transparent device architectures can enable multiple-sensing platforms. It is shown that flexible and compliant surface...
Article
Full-text available
In the last decade, the development of new flexible electronics is producing pervasive technologies for the Internet of Things (IoT), robotics and wearables transducers, pushing towards the demonstration of highly compliant low cost components on disposable or recy-clable substrates. In recent years, there was a marked improvement in these technolo...
Article
Polymeric based surface acoustic wave (SAW) devices represent one of the most interesting platform for the development of wireless passive sensors for IoT and smart packaging applications. An important feature to be addressed in order to develop a compact and conformable wireless SAW sensor is the increase of the working frequency which allows an e...
Article

This paper shows the optical photoresponse in the IR-Vis-UV range of a AlN-based piezoelectric surface acoustic wave (SAW) delay-line device. The piezoelectric aluminum nitride (AlN) thin film has been sputtered on both silicon rigid substrate and flexible polyethylene naphthalate (PEN) substrate. Both devices have been investigated in their electr...
Article
Over the last decades, great effort has gone into developing new biosensor technologies for applications in different fields such as disease diagnosis and detection of pollutants in water and food. Global developments in robotic, IoT technologies and in healthcare sensors require new flexible sensor technologies that are low cost and built from sus...
Article
This paper presents an innovative, flexible and biocompatible Ultra High Frequency meander antenna, operating at about 800 MHz, realized by means of sputtering on a Polyethylene Naphthalate substrate, and by means of a multi-material 3D printer. The fabricated antennas were characterized in terms of scattering parameters, showing a good impedance m...
Presentation
In the last decades, the development of wearable and edible devices for biosensing increasingly requires flexible and biocompatible technology. These microsystems must integrate smart materials with transduction capability across multiple physical and biochemical domains. Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) devices represent one of the most important MEMS...
Poster
Full-text available
This work focuses on the manufacturing of an antenna on flexible substrates with total thickness of the order of hundreds of microns and skin-like compliance. The integration of the antennas to a piezoelectric Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW)-based device is expected to pave the way for a new class of battery-less device for health parameters monitoring...
