Silver Nanowires in Water
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:
solar cells, optical equipment, SRP sensors, surface enhanced spectroscopy and medical imaging.
touchscreen display, high-intensity LEDs, conformal electronics, conductive adhesives, conductive inks, smart fabrics, EMI shielding, RFID antenna, batteries and supercapacitors.
Chemical & Thermalcatalysts, batteries, sensors, heat dissipation.
Antimicrobial & Thermal
bandages, coatings for medical devices and membranes for sterilization and water disinfection.
