Transparent conductive organic-inorganic hybrid composites based on Ag nanowires
Silver nanowires (AgNW) were incorporated into different organic-inorganic hybrids and a silicone composition that served as a reference. Spin coating yielded transparent conductive films, their respective nanowire distribution, thermal activation, and visual transparency were characterized. The percolation threshold of the films scales with the individual average AgNW length. Substantial conductivity was maintained throughout mechanical stretching up to 30%. Microstructured organic-inorganic hybrid composite films were obtained by UV lithography.
