Abstract

A class of thin, lightweight, flexible, near-field communication (NFC) devices with ultraminiaturized format is introduced, and systematic investigations of the mechanics, radio frequency characteristics, and materials aspects associated with their optimized construction are presented. These systems allow advantages in mechanical strength, placement versatility, and minimized interfacial stresses compared to other NFC technologies and wearable electronics. Detailed experimental studies and theoretical modeling of the mechanical and electromagnetic properties of these systems establish understanding of the key design considerations. These concepts can apply to many other types of wireless communication systems including biosensors and electronic implants. Materials and design concepts are introduced for miniaturized flexible electronic systems with wireless power and near-field communication (NFC) capabilities. The devices have thin, lightweight, flexible construction and advantages in mechanical strength, placement versatility, and minimized interfacial stresses for integration on the body. These concepts can apply to many other wireless communication systems including new opportunities in biosensors and electronic implants.
