Recent work involving microscale inorganic light-emitting diodes on flexible and stretchable substrates is reviewed. Techniques for materials growth, device fabrication, and assembly are summarized, along with highlights of optical, electrical, and mechanical properties that can be achieved. Some examples of emerging applications in biomedical devices illustrate the value of these methods in areas where conventional approaches are unsuitable.
