We present a method for fabricating flexible multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWNTs)-polymer (poly-dimethylsiloxane, PDMS) composites for high performance field emission devices and other flexible electronic applications. The polymer matrix isolates individual nanotubes on its surface, reducing mutual  and give rise to impressive field emission properties. The MWNT-PDMS composites are extremely flexible and electro-mechanically robust since they remain electrically conducting under large strains. The above mentioned features make these MWNT-PDMS composites suitable for future applications as multifunctional flexible devices such as pressure and gas sensors as well as flexible sensors and display devices.
