Flexible metal-free LECs demonstrated

In a recent article published in ACS Nano, we demonstrate that the metal-free LEC recently developed can be fabricated on flexible plastic substrate.  Although not entirely unexpected, this result shows that LECs have applications in a wide range of situations beyond the reach of traditional lighting.

In the picture to the right, such a device is shown operating while wrapped around a test tube filled with a solution of nanoparticles.
