Abstract

The field of printable electronics is well developed. A large variety of electronic components assembled as printable optoelectronic devices and communication modules are already available. However, the element responding to a magnetic field, which is highly demanded for the concept of printable electronics has only been realized very recently. A printable magnetic sensing device has been one of the remaining missing building blocks crucial to realize the concept of entirely printable electronics. Here, we position the novel topic of printable magnetic sensorics in a family of printable electronics and highlight possible application directions of this technology.
