Fully Stretchable Light-emitting Device From Nanotubes August 19, 2011

Posted by stuffilikenet in Awesome, Science, Toys.


This sheet was made using single-walled carbon nanotube-polymer composite electrodes as both the electron and hole injection electrodes. Both are metal-free and can be linearly stretched up to 45%–every part of the device is intrinsically stretchable. It was made by the researchers at UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science, and is just a start to making the roll-up electronic newspaper/ebook reader with video, et. al.

The future is here; it just isn’t evenly distributed.
