A rapid synthesis of high aspect ratio copper nanowires for high-performance transparent conducting films.

This communication presents a way to produce copper nanowires with aspect ratios as high as 5700 in 30 min, and describes the growth processes responsible for their formation. These nanowires were used to make transparent conducting films with a transmittance >95% at a sheet resistance <100 Ω sq(-1).
