Using a wet chemical process, a continuous network of silver nanowires was buried at the surface of a transparent polymer (PVA) to form a flexible transparent conductor, which shows high optical transparency, low sheet resistance, a smooth surface, and superior mechanical, thermal and chemical stabilities. The composite is a competitive choice for transparent electrodes in OLED and thin film solar cells.
