- Rapid advances in semiconductor nanomaterials, techniques for their assembly, and strategies for incorporation into functional systems now enable sophisticated modes of functionality and corresponding use scenarios in electronics that cannot be addressed with conventional, wafer-based technologies. This short review highlights enabling developments in the synthesis of one-and two-dimensional semiconductor nanomaterials (that is, NWs and nanomembranes), their manipulation and use in various device components together with concepts in mechanics that allow integration onto flexible plastic foils and stretchable rubber sheets. Examples of systems that combine with or are inspired by biology illustrate the current state-of-the-art in this fast-moving field.
