Stretchable optoelectronic circuits, incorporating chip-level LEDs and photodiodes in a silicone membrane, are demonstrated. Due to its highly miniaturized design and tissue-like mechanical properties, such an optical circuit can be conformally applied to the epidermis and be used for measurement of photoplethysmograms. This level of optical functionality in a stretchable substrate is potentially of great interest for personal health monitoring.
