  • Much research is underway at present to develop nanostructured transparent conductors for use as electrodes. Transparent electrodes typically require high visible transmittances, T > 90%, and so must be very thin. We show that for most nanostructured films thin enough to display T > 90%, the conduction can be described by percolation theory. This means DC conductivities are lower than in bulk, giving correspondingly higher sheet resistances, R(s). To improve our understanding of the… CONTINUE READING
