Fluoropolymer Drops Graphene’s Resistance
By laminating graphene with a fluoropolymer layer, researchers have made flexible, transparent, and highly conductive films (ACS Nano, DOI: 10.1021/nn3010137). The films could find use as the transparent electrodes needed in organic light-emitting diodes, solar cells, and displays, the researchers say.
Currently, electronics manufacturers use indium tin oxide (ITO) to make transparent electrodes. Because this material is expensive, researchers have . . .
