Highly stretchable, deformable, and contact-responsive light-emitting diodes (LEDs) were fabricated using a methylammonium lead tribromide (MAPbBr3)–poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) composite film as light-emissive layer. The polymer matrix formed through the mixing of PEO induced stretchability to the composite films, which were mechanically robust. The stretchable LEDs emitted pure green light at 538 nm and exhibited outstanding performance of a low turn-on voltage of about 2.5 V, maximum luminance of 4257 cd m−2, and current efficiency of 1.77 cd A−1. Furthermore, the device can be stretched up to tensile strain of 70% without failure and can stably operate after 1000 repetitive stretching cycles with no significant degradation of the device performance.
