Abstract

Polymer light-emitting devices are fabricated using single-walled carbon nanotube-polymer composite electrodes as both the electron and hole injection electrodes. The devices are metal-free and can be linearly stretched up to 45% strain. This represents a proof-of-concept, highly stretchable semiconductor device wherein every part of the device is intrinsically stretchable.
