Abstract

original image

High-throughput fabrication and characterization of nanomaterials represents an opportunity to discover optimal processing conditions for desired application-specific properties. Microfluidic devices used in combination with thermal annealing gradients produce high-throughput arrays of silver nanowire networks for screening optimal parameters in transparent conducting electrodes. A complementary technique to parallel characterization of nanowire network topology is also introduced.
