Gravure printed network based on silver nanowire for transparent electrode
Lin J., Gu W., Cui Z.
Silver nanowires were gravure printed on flexbile Poly(ethylene terephthalate) film to form conductive transparent patterns. Suspensions containing silver nanowires with different concentrations were formulated and various cell parameters in grauvre plate were investigated in the printing experiments. Printed samples were characterized by microscope and probes for their optical and electrical properties. It was found that concentration and uniformity of the Ag NW network play key roles in the optical transmission and electrical conductivity of printed films. Experimental result showed that with optimized parameters the transmission of 89% at sheet resistance of 200 Ω/sq have been achieved in the gravure printed transparent conductive films.
