DescriptionFlexible electronics have a large number of potential applications, including malleable displays and wearable computers. Current research into high-speed, flexible electronic substrates uses plastics for the flexible substrate, but these plastics typically have drawbacks, such as high thermal expansion coefficients. Transparent films made from cellulose nanofibrils (CNFs) have low thermal expansion and therefore the potential to serve as substrates for flexible electronics. Initial results show that cellulosic nanomaterials are promising candidates for electronic substrates, and research into the characterization of these substrates and their interactions with electronic devices is ongoing .
