Session 21: Novel Conductor and Semiconductor Materials
Graphene as Flexible Transparent Conductor
Thursday, June 22, 2017
10:40 AM - 11:00 AM
Beyond today’s incumbent technology, and among the many flexible transparent conductors, Graphene/Ag Nanowires is a good performance and cost effective solution. Production processes, electrical and optical characterization and future steps for market adoption will be discusses. An overview of the current CVD Graphene market will be also presented to assess the technological potential of this solution.
