Introduction – Due to technological advancement, there is an introduction of photonic devices. These are considered to be the optical technologies that have the capability of stretching and bending for various different applications that includes skin-mounted monitoring devices that can easily sense various optical signals. These kinds of devices also help in the detection of heart rate with various oxygen levels of blood with blood pressure.
Process – The system of the light beam works directly by making use of various systems of lenses, mirrors, LED’s, that are fabricated with same kinds of other processes. They are used for the manufacturing of technologically advanced electronic microchips. Many applications provide various advantages from the continuous use of light beams instead of using regular flow of electrons.
There are cases when original data is presented based on lights and the use of optical processing system avoids the need for a conversion process. But recent or current photonic devices are directly fabricated from rigid materials that are based on rigid substrates. The inheritance of mismatch applications is much softer than the human skin. But there are various different soft materials that include polymers. It has a low reflective index that results in the poor ability to confine a light beam.
Method – The novel method of this technology helps in the production of photonic devices that helps in the connection of different computing devices that can diagnose and monitor various systems that are attached or implanted to the skin of the human body. These can flex easily by making use of natural tissue. The photonic circuits that are flexible and stretchable are used in the applications where the devices are required to confirm the uneven surfaces of different materials that also include strain gauges.
Formation – This technology make use of a different type of glass that is called as chalcogenide. It is a thin layer which helps in the formation of a stiff material which allows the usage of spring-like coil. The structure of this coil helps in the stretching and bending of material freely with the proper maintenance of desired optical properties. This is very flexible in nature with the similar height of refractive index and is transparent.
Experiment – On this flexible material, a special experiment has been performed which shows that various spring-like configurations helps in the formation of polymer substrate that went through various stretching cycles with no detectable degradation in various optical performances. There is also a production of variety of different photonic components that are interconnected with wave guides that are flexible in nature. Also, various epoxy matrix that are stiffer than the other one.
