A stretchable and sensitive light-emitting fabric

Author affiliations


A novel type of lightweight and stretchable light-emitting fabric is developed with the highest brightness that is above 70 cd m−2. The brightness of the stretchable light-emitting fabric can be maintained at 98.5% even after stretching for 100 cycles at a strain of 100% with a stretching speed of 10% strain per s. This stretchable light-emitting fabric is further integrated with different colors of light-emitting modules for display. It is also able to detect external stimuli such as pressure, accompanying this detection with a visual feedback.
