Silver Nanowire-Based Flexible Transparent Composite Film for Curvature Measurements

Journal Article


Abstract


  • A transparent, flexible, and conductive epoxy resin film embedded

    with silver nanowires is fabricated through a simple process. The effect of silver

    nanowire areal mass density on the electrical and optical properties of films is

    investigated. It is found that resistance of the transparent composite film will change

    regularly during the bending process. The influence mechanism of bending behavior

    on the electrical property is explored. On the basis of this mechanism, the curvature

    in the bending process can be acquired immediately by measuring the resistance of

    the composite film. The high elastic modulus (800 MPa) of the composite film is a

    benefit for distinguishing the factor of resistance change caused by bending or

    stretching with low force. Additionally, high stability of the bending detector is

    demonstrated with 500 repeated bending cycles and a 6-month durability test.
