Abstract

image

In article 1300474, Jang-Joo Kim, Jae-Wook Kang, and co-workers report the development of extremely flexible transparent conducting electrodes for organic device applications. The electrodes are fabricated using a combination of metal-embedding architecture into a plastic substrate and ultrathin transparent electrodes and they exhibit high conductivity and extreme flexibility. These electrodes are used to fabricate flexible organic solar cells and organic light-emitting diodes that exhibit performances similar or superior to those of devices fabricated on glass substrates.
