Skin-inspired electronics is emerging as a new generation of soft electronics that may allow intimate contact with biological systems with minimal mechanical damage. Furthermore, they allow collection of sensing information with higher signal-to-noise ratio due to the lower impedance at electrode-tissue interface. In this talk, I will discuss several projects related to engineering conductive materials and developing fabrication methods to allow electronics with effective electrical interfaces with biological systems, through tuning their electrical as well as mechanical properties. The end result is a soft electrical interface that has both low interfacial impedance as well as match mechanical properties with biological tissue. Several applications of such electronics will be presented.
