Silver nanowires, in the running to replace transparent indium tin oxide electrodes, are plagued by instability under electrical and/or thermal stress.
A PhD candidate at LMGP showed that silver nanowires encapsulated in transparent oxides deposited by spatial ALD are stable.
Other laboratories and companies also contributed to the project, helping integrate the reinforced silver nanowires into heating films for labs-on-chip, piezoelectric generators, X-ray sources, organic photovoltaics, and other devices.
Dorina Papanastasiou, the PhD student behind the research, received a C’Nano Aura thesis award.
She is now a postdoc at LMGP.
