The increasing demand for flexible and wearable devices has attracted research in developing flexible energy harvesting, storage, and sensor devices for powering and other requirements of wearable devices. The global flexible electronics market was valued at $23.64 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach $42.48 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 7.4% from 2020 to 2027. Therefore, this proposal aims to synthesize organic and inorganic nanomaterials and formulate functional inks for screen printing of energy storage devices such as flexible supercapacitors, energy harvesting devices such as dye-sensitized solar cells, and flexible sensors such as thermal sensors for medical and healthcare applications.
