Samenvatting

Silver nanowires (AgNWs) are excellent candidate electrode materials in next-generation wearable devices due to their high flexibility and high conductivity. In particular, patterning techniques for AgNWs electrode manufacture are very important in the roll-to-roll printing process to achieve high throughput and special performance production. It is also essential to realize a non-contact mode patterning for devices in order to keep the pre-patterned components away from mechanical damages. Here, we report a successful non-contact patterning of AgNWs-based stretchable and transparent electrodes by laser-induced forward transfer (LIFT) technique. The technique was used to fabricate a 100% stretchable electrode with a width of 200 μm and electrical resistivity 10−4 Ωcm. Experiments conducted integrating the stretchable electrode on rubber substrate in which LED was pre-fabricated showed design flexibility resulting from non-contact printing. Further, a patterned transparent electrode showed over 80% in optical transmittance and less than 100 Ω sq−1 in sheet resistance by the optimized LIFT technique.
