We report on the fabrication of patterned flexible graphene devices via a facile direct transfer of bi-layer graphene grown on alumina (Al 2 O 3 ) substrate, and the use of Ag nanowire stickers as flexible electrodes. Patterned polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) stamps coated with vaporized dimethylformamide (DMF) are utilized to transfer as-grown graphene directly onto a flexible polyethylene terephthalate (PET) substrate. The facile direct transfer is attributed to the enhanced adhesion of the bi-layer graphene to PDMS, due to DMF-coating, as well as the weak adhesion between the bi-layer graphene and the Al 2 O 3 substrate. In this way, flexible patterned graphene devices have been fabricated with Ag nanowire stickers as electrodes. Stable electrical conduction characteristics were measured over repetitive bending with a bending radius down to 5 mm.
