- The insufficient electrical conductivity and mechanical stretchability of conventional graphene fibers based on reduced graphene oxide liquid crystals (rGO-LCs) has limited their applications to numerous textile devices. Here, we report a simple method to fabricate multifunctional fibers with mechanically strong rGO cores and highly conductive CVD graphene shells (rGO@Gr fibers), which show an outstanding electrical conductivity as high as similar to 137 S cm(-1) and a failure strain value of 21%, which are believed to be the highest values among polymer-free graphene fibers. We also demonstrate the use of the rGO@Gr fibers for high power density supercapacitors with enhanced mechanical stability and durability, which would enable their practical applications in various smart wearable devices in the future.
