In this chapter, the authors review some recent work in the area of micro/nanostructured materials (including wires, ribbons, and single-walled carbon nanotubes) for high-performance devices and circuits on flexible and even stretchable substrates, in two- or three-dimensional layouts. Approaches, ranging from self-assembly to dry transfer printing, for fabricating a variety of micro/nanostructured materials are discussed. These methods enable high-performance electronics on plastic or elastomer substrates, as demonstrated in several different application examples. Successful commercial implementation of such techniques represents a significant engineering challenge, but could create interesting opportunities for developing electronic systems such as personal health monitors and hemispherical electronic eye imagers.
