Transparent Conductive Materials

Transparent conducting materials (TCMs) constitute a research topic that has been extensively studied in recent decades since they are of great interest for applications or devices such as electrodes for solar cells or for OLEDs, gas sensors, transparent heaters or for transparent electronics.
Our goal is the design, understanding and optimization of TCMs of two different types:
  • Silver nanowire networks (AgNWs),
  • Transparent conductive oxides (TCOs) n- or p-type, with a particular interest in fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) and thin layers of Cu(I)-based oxides.
Our approach is not only experimental but also supplemented by modeling.

Investigations are conducted following 3 lines :
