Abstract

Optically transparent paper of densely packed cellulose nanofibers is prepared without any additives. This material has the same chemical constituents as conventional paper, the only difference being the fiber width and the size of the interstitial cavities. This optically transparent paper exhibits high Young's modulus, high strength, ultralow CTE, and high foldability.
