Abstract

The flexible transparent conducting films (TCFs) are required to realize flexible optoelectronic devices. 1D nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes (CNTs), metal nanowires are good candidates to replace indium tin oxide that is currently used to fabricate transparent electrode. Particularly, silver nanowires are used to produce flexible TCFs. In this review, we introduce TCF technologies based on silver nanowires/CNTs hybrid structures. CNTs can compromise drawbacks of silver nanowires for applications in high performance TCFs for optoelectronic devices.
