23_10/2013Silver Nanowires: Uniformly Interconnected Silver-Nanowire Networks for Transparent Film Heaters (Adv. Funct. Mater. 10/2013)

By synthesizing silver nanowires with high aspect ratio and optimizing the nanowire network quality, highly transparent and conductive films are obtained on a large scale. These are explored as electrodes for flexible film heaters. On page 1250, Kwang S. Suh and co-workers report that the film heater based on a uniformly interconnected silver nanowire network shows an efficient heating at low input voltages.
