Abstract

Stretchable energy storage have attracted growing attention with the fast development of stretchable electronics, implantable medical devices, and paper display devices. However, the need for research in stretchable electronics that can sustain large mechanical strains while still maintaining their function is highly needed. This project will focus on investigating different battery structures to create simple processes and designs for feasible scale up manufacturing. This project also describes the fabrication and characterization of stretchable and conductive polymer nanocomposites embedded with carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and carbon black (CB) active materials for application of the anode in flexible lithium ion batteries.
