Welded nanowires may lead to low-cost touch-screens, video displays, LEDs, and thin-film solar cells
February 7, 2012
Stanford University engineers have demonstrated a promising new nanowire welding technique to create electrically conductive meshes made of metal nanowires.
The research promises to lead to exceptional electrical throughput, low cost and easy processing for new generations of touch-screens, video displays, light-emitting diodes, and thin-film solar cells.
In processing, these delicate meshes must be heated or pressed to unite the crisscross pattern of nanowires that form the mesh,… read more
