Scalable Coating and Properties of Transparent, Flexible, Silver Nanowire Electrodes

submitted by: yuanyang
We report a comprehensive study of transparent and conductive silver nanowire (Ag NW) electrodes, including a scalable fabrication process, morphologies, and optical, mechanical adhesion, and flexibility properties, and various routes to improve the performance. We utilized a synthesis specifically designed for long and thin wires for improved performance in terms of sheet resistance and optical transmittance. Twenty ohm/sq and 80% specular transmittance, and 8 ohms/sq and 80% diffusive...

Graphene and Mobile Ions: The Key to All-Plastic, Solution-Processed Light-Emitting Devices

submitted by: NateRobinson
The emerging field of “organic” or “plastic” electronics has brought low-voltage, ultrathin, and energy-efficient lighting and displays to market as organic light-emitting diode (OLED) televisions and displays in cameras and mobile phones. Despite using carbon-based materials as the light-emitting layer, previous efficient organic electronic light-emitting devices have required at least one metal electrode. Here, we utilize chemically derived graphene for the transparent cathode in...
