Abstract

original image

Graphene electronic circuits are prepared on paper substrates by using graphene nanoplates and applied to foldable paper-based electronics. The graphene circuits show a small change in conductance under various folding angles and maintain an electronic path on paper substrates after repetition of folding and unfolding. Foldable paper-based applications with graphene circuits exhibit excellent folding stability.
