We report on fabrication, characterization, and properties of nanocrystalline semiconductor films and thin-film devices chemically deposited on fibers, cloth, and large area flexible substrates at low temperatures (close to room temperature). We also describe the photovoltaic effect in CdS/CuS films deposited on viewfoils and trylene threads. CdS films deposited on viewfoils exhibit unique behavior under stress and UV radiation exposure with reproducible resistance changes of several orders of magnitude with bending up to 10 mm curvature. The measurements of the 1/f noise in these nanocrystalline structures indicate a high quality of nanocrystallites.
