Ink-jet printed energy storage devices on textiles: powering the next generation of smart clothing

Project description

New technology for smart e-fabrics without batteries

E-textiles or smart fabrics are a new trend. These fabrics enable digital components such as battery or lights or other electronics to be embedded in them but a key consideration is the need for a power supply. A major difficulty in the production of an e-textile is the fact that power supply units are usually not lightweight and discrete enough. The EU-funded Powering_eTextiles project proposes to research the possibility of engaging new technologies to develop ink-jet printed energy storage devices, based on two-dimensional nanosheets. This will make smart fabrics’ production cheaper and scalable. It will also improve the special effects and final quality of fabrics.
