Transparent conductors

Transparent conducting electrodes are an essential part in many technological areas including photovoltaic cells, photodiodes, panel displays, touch screen technology, as well as emerging areas such as organic electronics, and new smart sensors. Materials with high conductivity and high transparency in the visible spectral region are higly desirable and intensive research continues to serach for effective material systems that can provide such characteristics. In our lab we explore how to tune the electrical characteristics of new transparent conductive materials, in a way that we can provide effective and superior alternatives to indium-tin-oxide.
