New nanomaterial offers promise in bendable, wearable electronic devices

13.06.2016 | University of Illinois at Chicago | news.uic.edu

An ultrathin film that is both transparent and highly conductive to electric current has been produced by a cheap and simple method devised by an international team of nanomaterials researchers from the University of Illinois at Chicago and Korea University.

The film – actually a mat of tangled nanofiber, electroplated to form a “self-junctioned copper nano-chicken wire‚ – is also bendable and stretchable, offering potential applications in roll-up touchscreen displays, wearable electronics, flexible solar cells and electronic skin.

New nanomaterial

The new film establishes a “world-record combination of high transparency and low electrical resistance,” the latter at least 10-fold greater than the previous existing record, said Sam Yoon, who is also a corresponding author and a professor of mechanical engineering at Korea University.

The film also retains its properties after repeated cycles of severe stretching or bending, which is an important property for touchscreens or wearables.
