Potential ITO replacement
Researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology claim a replacement for indium tin oxide, as widely used in displays and solar cells. The replacement is a transparent, conducting film produced in water and based on electrically conducting carbon nanotubes and plastic nanoparticles. The research team combined low concentrations of carbon nanotubes and conducting latex in a low-cost polystyrene film. The nanotubes and the latex together account for less than 1% of the weight of the conducting film.
