Paper Abstract

This paper presents an update concerning the properties of a new class of nanostructured materials that exhibit the combined properties of low mechanical modulus and high electrical conductivity. Such "Metal RubberTM" materials are formed by molecular-level self-assembly processes. Material synthesis and properties are described. Potential applications for space-based photonics and electronics are in flexible polymer-based electrodes and opto-electronic devices.
