NanoCnet introduces a new generation of nanomaterials for flexible transparent electrodes. Highly transparent electrodes with high electrical conductivity and thermal stability can be fabricated using NanoCnet’s silver based ink. Compared to typical synthesis process of the silver nanowire, synthesis process of NanoCnet’s nanomaterial is fast and happen at room temperature which saves a lot of energy and time for manufacturing . The cost of NanoCnet’s electrodes is 20-30% less than typical silver nanowires on the market and 40-50% less that ITO films. The unique properties of NanoCnet’s electrodes make them ideal for device applications such as touch panels, solar cells, displays, and smart windows.
