Stretchable conductors based on buckled carbon nanotube (CNT) fibers are fabricated by a simple prestraining-then-buckling approach. The primary deformation mode of the CNT fibers is lateral kinking. This buckling shape is quite different from the sinusoidal shape observed previously in otherwise similar systems. The prepared CNT fiber/polydimethylsiloxane composite film shows excellent stability and repeatability in performance as a stretchable conductor.
