Zinc oxide (ZnO) nanowire networks have been proposed as an alternative to organic and amorphous semiconductors for plastic electronics. Although the mobility of the ZnO networks is lower than that of individual nanowires, they offer the advantages of high transparency and flexibility. A major drawback of using individual nanowires in nano or microelectronic applications is the lack of a manufacturable process to precisely assemble nanowires into small devices. The use of ZnO networks avoid… CONTINUE READING
