Flexible transparent conductive films as electrodes

Project description

Transparent, conductive and flexible electrodes are one of the most important components of the development and design of new consumer electronics for everyday use. Currently, such electrodes are based on expensive metals such as indium, which is one of the more rare metals in the earth's crust. Manufacturing is also done at high cost and with advanced technology. The project proposes technologies for developing flexible, transparent and conductive electrodes based on integrated metallic carbon nanotubes, functionalized graphs and abundant metals. The goal is that the electrodes should be able to manufacture with scalable processes, such as spray coating, or so-called scroll-to-roll printing.
