Objectives

  • Delivery of a prototype aluminum anodization procedure for the large scale production of AAO nanoporous templates
  • with pores thinner than 160 nm and longer than 60 μm
  • Delivery of a prototype “green” high quality pulse electrodeposition process (PED) production procedure for the large scale production of Cu nanowire
  • Delivery of transparent conductive film on the PET substrate (flexibility: <2% resistance change over 1000-2000 bending cycles)
  • Achieve desired properties in means of combining high transmittance (85%) and low sheet resistance ~15Ω/sq
  • Stability of the ink and good dispersion of the Cu nanowires in it.
