2021年6月15日，受胡文平教授邀请，香港理工大学郑子剑教授做客天津市分子光电科学重点实验室，向师生做了题为“Porous Conductive Textiles for Wearable Electronics”的学术报告。
郑子剑教授在报告中指出，可穿戴电子学将在健康监测、康复训练、物联网以及柔性机器人等方面扮演重要角色，这类可穿戴设备系统不仅需要具备超柔、可拉伸甚至可清洗的特性，还应在长时间穿戴过程中舒适度高。郑教授团队针对导电织物材料及其应用开展系列研究，报告中，郑教授就聚合物协助金属沉积法polymer-assisted metal deposition (PAMD)制备高性能、可清洗的柔性导电纤维、纱线、纤维织物做了详细介绍。该类材料可广泛应用于可穿戴传感器、储能器件等。此外，郑教授还介绍了高渗透性、可拉伸的液态金属纤维毡liquid metal fiber mat (LMFM)。该类材料可应用于长时间可穿戴的三维大型柔性电子器件。
