Abstract

The use of fractal-inspired geometric designs in electrical interconnects represents an important approach to simultaneously achieve large stretchability and high aerial coverage of active devices for stretchable electronics. The elastic stiffness of fractal interconnects is determined analytically in this paper. Specifically, the elastic energy and the tensile stiffness for an order n fractal interconnect of arbitrary shape are obtained, and are verified by the finite element analysis and experiments.
