KGaA, Weinheim. Stretchable and transparent electrodes are fabricated by chemical deposition of metal thin films on natural veins of leaves at ambient conditions. These vein-based transparent electrodes show excellent electro-optical property (0.9 Ω sq-1at 83% T) even at 50% tensile strains, ideal for flexible and stretchable optoelectronic devices.
