Transient electronics are an emerging class of electronics with the unique characteristic to completely dissolve within a programmed period of time. Since no harmful byproducts are released, these electronics can be used in the human body as a diagnostic tool, for instance, or they can be used as environmentally friendly alternatives to existing electronics which disintegrate when exposed to water. Thus, the most crucial aspect of transient electronics is their ability to disintegrate in a practical manner and a review of the literature on this topic is essential for understanding the current capabilities of transient electronics and areas of future research. In the past, only partial dissolution of transient electronics was possible, however, total dissolution has been achieved with a recent discovery that silicon nanomembrane undergoes hydrolysis. The use of single- and multi-layered structures has also been explored as a way to extend the lifetime of the electronics. Analytical models have been developed to study the dissolution of various functional materials as well as the devices constructed from this set of functional materials and these models prove to be useful in the design of the transient electronics.
Transient directly implies anything impermanent i.e. lasting for some time. Transient Electronics is a technology that involves components which physically disappear in whole or in part, at prescribed rates and programmed times. By taking a typical electronic circuit and recreating it as ultrathin model, researchers have created electronic devices that dissolve into their surroundings when no longer required. This paper explains these devices, how they are built, their biocompatibility and ecocompatibility and exactly how they function. Transient Electronics have an astounding number of applications in life sciences and also consumer electronics. Enabled devices include medical monitors that dissolve that fully resorb when implanted in body (bi-resorable) to avoid long term adverse effects or environmental monitors that dissolve when exposed to water (ecoresorable) to eliminate need for collection and recovery. Transient Electronics makes medicine more practical, more efficient, and safer and changes the way we handle electronic waste in our environment.
