A transparent stretchable conductor, in which well-aligned CNT ribbons are embedded in poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) (CNT/PDMS film), is presented. Due to the good inter-tube contact and stable CNT arrangement in the CNT ribbons, the CNT/PDMS film can maintain stable conductivity under repetitive stretching to strains up to 100%.
