The growth mechanism of copper nanowires and their properties in flexible, transparent conducting films

Journal Article

"Figure Presented" Copper nanowires grow from spherical copper seeds in an aqueous solution. Conductive films of copper nanowires have a transmittance of 65% (-15 % more than the best values reported for carbon nanotubes), and remain conductive after 1000 bending cycles or one month in air. © 2010 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
