- Engineers have created a pulse oximeter sensor composed of all-organic optoelectronics that uses red and green light
- For the organic sensors, the research team used red and green light, which yield comparable differences to red and infrared when it comes to distinguishing high and low levels of oxygen in the blood
- Components of conventional oximeters are relatively expensive.In contrast, organic electronics are cheap enough that they are disposable like a Band-Aid after use.
