Transparent, electrically conductive network of encapsulated silver nanowires

31 julio 2015

A transparent electrode with high electrical conductivity has been developed for solar cells and other optoelectronic components — that uses minimal amounts of material. It consists of a random network of silver nanowires that is coated with aluminium-doped zinc oxide. The novel electrode requires about 70 times less silver than conventional silver grid electrodes, but possesses comparable electrical conductivity.img src=»» height=»1″ width=»1″ alt=»»/
