Textiles have been widely used in our life. These fibre-based products are flexible and breathable, making them ideal for long-term skin-contacting purposes. If we could produce textiles that possess sensing functions, it could open possibilities for many wearable and biology-interface applications, such as health monitoring, remote diagnoses and internet-of-things. However, simply adhering or printing conventional electronic devices onto fabrics dose not work well because the difference in mechanical properties. My research aims produce intrinsically functional micro/nano-fibres, as building blocks for various micro-textile sensors. I will demonstrate exemplary applications of spider-web inspired piezoelectric nanofibre mesh as broadband acoustic sensor, and 3D printed wearable breath sensor and bioelectronic sensor with conducting microfibres.
