Abstract

Transparent electronic devices that retain their electrical properties upon stretching and twisting are envisioned to be used in transparent wearable electronics and stretchable displays. An integral part of stretchable transparent electronic devices is the stretchable transparent conductor. In this work, we demonstrate biaxially stretchable transparent conductors that use metallic single-walled carbon nanotube films. Two dimensionally buckled metallic single-walled carbon nanotube films are realized. The “wavy” film “flattens out” when stretched and its electrical resistance hardly changes up to 3% applied strain. A similar film without any buckled structures suffers a severe degradation in electrical conductivity. Besides exhibiting stretchability, these transparent conductors display good sheet resistance (down to 3 kΩ/□) and transmittance (∼ 80% at a wavelength of 550 nm).
