Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This is a Special Issue of the journal Materials dedicated to Smart Textile Materials and Fabric-Based Wearable Devices which welcomes innovative works which explore new challenges in the future applications of healthcare, consumer products, and human–machine interfaces. Textiles are soft, flexible, lightweight, breathable and conformable platforms. Recently, they have offered an excellent platform for incorporating sensors into human-based sensing applications, including temperature sensors, humidity sensors, and physical sensors.  Furthermore, the development of flexible, textile-based energy harvesters and storage devices including fiber-based supercapacitors and batteries has progressed significantly in the past decade.

I invite your recent research articles, review articles, and brief communications on all topics related to smart textile materials and fabric-based wearable devices.

Assoc. Prof. Jihyun Bae
