Physicists make transparent conductors by means of stamping and growing

InterNano Industry News - February 5, 2016 - 4:45am
Researchers from FOM institute AMOLF have discovered a new technique to make transparent conductors used in electronics such as solar cells and smartphones. The technique is a combination of a stamping mechanism on the nanoscale and a chemical process. Compared with existing production methods, this new technique results in a better conducting product at lower costs. The researchers will publish the results online on December 3rd in the journal Advanced Materials.
