Polymer–ITO nanocomposite template for the optoelectronic application

  • Sukti Chatterjee


Polymer–ITO (PI) nanocomposite templates with various ITO concentrations have been fabricated by electrospinning. These templates look like a mat with tangled nanofibers, and are optically transparent (85–90%) in the visible region of the solar spectrum (400–700 nm). The electronic properties of those transparent films were studied. The highest conductivity achieved is 1.04 × 10S cm−1. The promising optoelectronic properties present the great promise of PI nanocomposites to be the top layer of the next generation flexible photo devices, like solar cells and light emitting diodes (LED).
