Researchers have created a light weight, flexible and low cost textile material that may be used in signs, architecture and light emitting clothing.

According to media reports, the material emits uniform and bright yellow light for more than 180 hours, so scientists see varied applications for this technology in the field of wearables.

The new technology has been developed by spray-coating a light-emitting electrochemical cell (LEC) onto a transparent fabric-based electrode.

This results in a simpler and less expensive fabrication process as against that used to make OLEDs.

The fabric electrode is made up polymer fibres and of a weave of silver-coated copper wires that are embedded in a polymer matrix.

"Our work shows that ultra-flexible light emission on large areas can be realised on very lightweight textile electrodes," Thomas Lanz from Umea University in Sweden told Phys.Org. (AR)
