Findings on Nanotubes Discussed by M. Sloma and Co-Researchers (Transparent Electrodes with Nanotubes and Graphene for Printed Optoelectronic Applications)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Electronics Newsweekly -- Investigators publish new report on Nanotubes. According to news reporting from Warsaw, Poland, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "We report here on printed electroluminescent structures containing transparent electrodes made of carbon nanotubes and graphene nanoplatelets. Screen-printing and spray-coating techniques were employed."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research, "Electrodes and structures were examined towards optical parameters using spectrophotometer and irradiation meter. Electromechanical properties of transparent electrodes are exterminated with cyclical bending test. Accelerated aging process was conducted according to EN 62137 standard for reliability tests of electronics. We observed significant negative influence of mechanical bending on sheet resistivity of ITO, while resistivity of nanotube and graphene based electrodes remained stable. Aging process has also negative influence on ITO based structures resulting in delamination of printed layers, while those based on carbon nanomaterials remained intact. We observe negligible changes in irradiation for structures with carbon nanotube electrodes after accelerated aging process."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Such materials demonstrate a high application potential in general purpose electroluminescent devices."
