As all the gadgets seem to grow smaller and smaller day by day, the need for thin-film and highly flexible material is on the rise. Due to the ever increasing demand of Smartphones touch screens, LED and LCD displays, Solar cells, etc; the need for transparent and highly flexible electrodes for creating Displays is on the rise.
South Korean and U.S scientists have jointly developed a transparent and flexible electrode which can be used for varied applications like LCD displays, Solar cells, Tablets and Smartphone touch screens, and organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays for Televisions and Computer monitors.

These electrodes will soon act as a substitute to indium-doped tin oxide (ITO) displays earlier used in different display screens. This new substance is stretchable, flexible, and stiff and rigid at the same time, which will help in creating various stable deformed shapes.
This bendable electrode was created by scientists from Korea University and Ames Laboratory under the U.S Department of Energy.
