We report on the fabrication and characterization of plasmonic structures on flexible substrates (Metaflex) and demonstrate the optical properties of a single layer of Metaflex. The layer exhibits a plasmonic resonance in the visible region around 620 nm.We show experimental and numerical results for both nano-antennas and fishnet geometries.We anticipate the use of Metaflex as a building block for flexible metamaterials in the visible range.
