Abstract:
In this work, we present an alternative method for the spray coating of silver nanowires contact electrodes by employing a mixture of short and long nanowires. Mixed silver nanowires are found to give improve optical properties with 2-5% higher transparency for the same sheet resistance of 25 Ωsq-1, when compared to silver nanowires prepared with a single geometry nanowire. The figure of merit (FoM) for the 25 Ωsq-1 sheet resistance electrode was found to be highest for the mixed composition AgNWs-M1 based electrodes. Furthermore, the average root mean square surface roughness (Rq) parameter by WLI measurement are found to be lower for the mixed composition silver nanowires electrodes (Rq= 3-4 nm) when compare to the individual parent fixed dimension type silver nanowire electrodes (Rq = 6-8 nm).
