Flexible and stretchable electronics are attracting much attention because of the variety of potential applications from flexible e-papers though wearable healthcare devices. Among various kinds of electronic materials, carbon nanotube thin films have advantages in flexibility, stretchability, and performance because of the excellent electronic and mechanical properties. Three-dimensional formability is also unique property of carbon nanotube thin film devices, leading to new form of electron devices. Low cost manufacturing is also possible with printing techniques due to the good processability of carbon nanotube films. In the presentation, I will talk about the recent works on flexible and stretchable devices based on carbon nanotube thin films for realizing wearable healthcare electronics, including high-mobility thin-film transistors, integrated circuits, and biosensors fabricated on plastic films. The simple fabrication processes based on micro-patterning technique of CNT films and high-throughput printing techniques will also be presented.
