Stretchable conductor receives a lot of attention as increasing interests about portable, lightweight electrical devices. Stretchable conductor is possible to modify their form while maintaining their electrical properties so it is possible to apply new devices such as removable, curved electrical devices and enlarge application of existing electrical devices such as display, cellular phone and battery et al. through their portability and light weight. Stretchable conductor is fabricated by various method. Fabrication of nanocomposites consisting of conductive filler and elastomer matrix is one of them. Nano-carbon materials such as carbon nanotube and graphene and metal nanowire are mainly researched as conducitive fillers due to their superior electrical properties and high aspect ratio structure which is advantageous to form electrical path in matrix. To enhance electrical properties while maintaining stretchability, it is necessary to form electrical path by low contents of filler. For this reason, Researches are needed to enhance dispersibility and electrical network of fillers in matrix.
