Nature Communications: Breakthrough in SOLED

Stretchable organic light-emitting devices (OLEDs) are becoming increasingly important in the fast-growing fields of wearable displays, biomedical devices and health-monitoring technology. Although highly stretchable OLEDs have been demonstrated, their luminous efficiency and mechanical stability remain impractical for the purposes of real-life applications. This is due to significant challenges arising from the high strain-induced limitations on the structure design of the OLED, the materials used and the difficulty of controlling the stretch-release process.
