Carbon nanotubes for transparent conductive films

Carbon nanotubes for transparent conductive films

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are one of multiple technology options for making transparent conductive films (TCFs). Similar to graphene, there are many different types of CNTs and many production techniques. The main processes are arc discharge, laser ablation and chemical vapour deposition (CVD); while the main types are single, double or multi-wall, and semiconducting and metallic. This article assesses the latest progress with using CNTs as transparent conductive films. IDTechEx outlines the latest improvements in performance, manufacturing processes and cost. It identifies key players globally and discusses their business models and progress with commercialisation. Where appropriate, it makes reference to competing technology options such metal mesh, silver nanowires, graphene, PEDOT:PSS, etc. This article provides a realistic assessment and insight into the fortunes of carbon nanotubes in the future of the fast changing transparent conductive film industry.

Silver nanowires as transparent conductive materials

In this article series, IDTechEx Research will critically examine the various technology options that are emerging to serve as transparent conductive films. IDTechEx will provide a detailed briefing on the technology attributes and manufacturing processes. IDTechEx will then offer a critical SWOT analyses and examine the current and future uses of the technology. Finally, IDTechEx will offer a briefing on key players commercialising the technology. IDTechEx Research will start by examining silver nanowires and will then continue with graphene, carbon nanotubes, micro-fine, metal mesh and PDOT:PSS.
