Product Details

Silver Nanowires in Isopropanol

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:
