LED fiber research yields color-tunable textile

April 24th, 2015

Researchers have developed thin, light-emitting fibers capable of being woven into color-tunable textiles. Huisheng Peng of Fudan University, Shanghai, and colleagues found that a fiber-shaped PLEC (polymer light-emitting electrochemical cell) could be made by coating a thin steel wire with a layer of zinc oxide nanoparticles. The fibers are around one millimeter thick and can […]
