Index-matched indium tin oxide (ITO) electrodes for capacitive touch screen panels have been fabricated to improve optical transmittance and reduce the difference of reflectance (deltaR) between the etched and un-etched regions. 8.5 nm Nb2O5 and 49 nm SiO2 thin films were deposited by magnetron sputtering as index-matching layers between an ITO electrode and a glass substrate. In case of 30 nm ITO electrode, a 4.3% improvement in the optical transmittance and a deltaR of less than 1% were… Expand

25‐3: A Single‐Layer Capacitive Touch Sensor for Vehicle Display
We developed single-layer (caterpillar pattern) type touch screen panel(TSP) using high conductive and transparent hybrid (Oxide/Metal/Oxide(OMO)) electrodes for the issue. Through our study, the OMOExpand
Effect of Inductively Coupled Plasma on Multilayer Electrodes for Flexible Single-Layer Touch Screen Panels.
It is demonstrated that the crystallization of the ICP supplied Ag layer in multilayer electrodes leads to the smooth surface roughness of theMultilayer film; the smoothsurface roughness provided low light scattering and improved the sheet resistance and transmittance of multilayers electrodes.
