Abstract

A distinctive microtectonic effect enabled oxygen deficient, nanopatterned zinc oxide (ZnO) thin films on an elastomeric substrate are introduced to realize large area, stretchable, transparent, and ultraportable sensors. The unique surface structures are exploited to create stretchable gas and ultraviolet light sensors, both of which outperform their rigid counterparts under room temperature conditions.
