Transparent Silver Nanowire Films

Metal nanowires cast as thin-film electrodes could replace indium tin oxide in future display technologies
Department: Science & Technology
Keywords: thin films, nanowires, transparent, electrode, ITO

Silver nanowires cast as flexible, transparent thin films could be the improved replacement for indium tin oxide (ITO) thin-film electrodes that scientists have been looking for, report Jonathan N. Coleman of Trinity College Dublin and coworkers (ACS Nano, DOI: 10.1021/nn900348c). ITO is today’s most common transparent electrode material and is found in flat-panel, touch-screen, and plasma . . .
