Abstract

Silver nanowires (Ag NWs) with the length of ~60 μm and the diameter of ~300 nm are prepared via a simple, cost-effective, high-yield and eco-friendly procedure under a high molar concentration ratio of silver nitrate (AgNO3) solution to Poly(vinyl pyrrolidone) (PVP) solution. The pre-synthesized Ag NWs were analyzed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and UV-Visible spectrophotometer. Furthermore, the as-prepared silver nanowires were roll-coated on the surfaces of the polyethylene terephthalate (PET) substrates. By optimizing the concentration of silver nanowire solution, the flexible Ag NW/ PET transparent electrodes with a sheet resistance of 3.8 Ω sq-1 at a transmittance of 70% can be fabricated. The results reported in this paper provide a basis for optimizing the growth of silver nanowires and performances of transparent electrodes.
