Summary:

High-perforamnce and stretchable polymer light emitting diodes entail a transparent conductor that is mechanically compliant. A polymer composite based on silver nanowires or carbon nanotubes has been prepared with high transparency, high conductivity, and low surface roughness suitable for the fabrication of high-performance OLEDs. The polymer OLEDs employing a compliant opposite electrode are highly stretchable.
