Electrionic Materials and Devices

The term 'electrionics' is synthesis of the words ‘electronic’and ‘ionic’ and materials that exhibit coupled interactions are termed as electrionic materials. 

Electrionic materials include a diverse selection - from soft biological self-assemblies to organic polymers and hard inorganic ceramics. The fundamental property of electrionic materials have been leveraged to create devices - sensors, actuators, energy conversion and storage devices.
