Electronic Textiles: Atomic Layer Deposition of Conductive Coatings on Cotton, Paper, and Synthetic Fibers: Conductivity Analysis and Functional Chemical Sensing Using “All-Fiber” Capacitors (Adv. Funct. Mater. 11/2011)
Electronic functionalization of complex fiber systems is important for new applications in energy systems and electronic textiles. The cover image shows a natural fibrous material with and without conductive coating. Atomic layer deposition (ALD) of conductive coatings on natural and synthetic fibrous materials show high conductivity, and the values scale as expected with film thickness and bulk-material conductance. On page 1993, Jesse S. Jur and co-workers present an all-fiber-based capacitor formed by ALD on textiles that shows good sensing performance in several liquid media.
