Scientists enhance stretchability of graphene, though further testing needed to determine viability in flexible electronics

Researchers from North Carolina State University and the University of Texas recently demonstrated a technique to improve the stretchability of graphene. Specifically, the scientists characterized the interfacial strength between monolayer graphene and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and identif...
