Wearable electronics have undergone great progress through the advancement of smart watches and fitness trackers. Recently, their applications have been expanded by combining conformal electronics with skinattachable sensors for monitoring various bio-signals and body movements. However, it is very difficult to accomplish such electronics with conventional, rigid electronic materials. Two dimensional (2D) materials such as graphene and MoS2 possess an extremely good mechanical property that should maintain a stable operation under a high strain, offering great electronic properties that make it a promising host for device applications. The recent advances in synthesis and fabrication technique of 2D materials are expected to enable various applications for flexible, stretchable and wearable electronics. In this talk, I present the application possibility of 2D materials for wearable electronics including skin-attachable sensor and energy harvesting devices.
