Overview

Silver nanowires are one-dimensional nanomaterials having a number of exciting properties that are not exhibited by the bulk silver and spherical nanoparticles. These nanowires can be tuned to meet the requirements for most printing techniques including roll-to-roll, slot-die, gravure and flexographic printing. The nanowires exhibit distinct optical, electrical, and thermal properties and are being incorporated into a wide range of products:

 

Optical:

solar cells, optical equipment, SRP sensors, surface enhanced spectroscopy and medical imaging.

Conductor Applications:

touchscreen display, high-intensity LEDs, conformal electronics, conductive adhesives, conductive inks, smart fabrics, EMI shielding, RFID antenna, batteries and supercapacitors.

Chemical & Thermal:

catalysts, batteries, sensors, heat dissipation.

Antimicrobial:

bandages, coatings for medical devices and membranes for sterilization and water disinfection.
