HS Peng’s group designed a horizontal rotating movement method, in which a highly stretchable, fiber-shaped supercapacitor has been, for the first time, developed by combining the elasticity of polymers with the extraordinary electric and mechanical properties of carbon nantotube (CNT). The supercapacitor exhibits the properties of high flexibility, folding and stretchability, even of which every performances maintains 100% after stretch by 75%. This fiber-shaped supercapacitor can further be easily weaved into textiles of various shapes, even integrated into various microelectronic applications for requirements for microenergy in the future.
On November 8, 2013, the research was published online in the international authoritative chemistry journal Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/anie.201307619/abstract). Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. provided a special press release by “Super-Stretchy Electronics” on November 25. Afterwards, on December 5, the work was highlighted by the journal Nature.
