Eindhoven, Netherlands — Researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology have developed a replacement for indium tin oxide (ITO). ITO is a clear, transparent, electrically-conductive substance widely used in the manufacture of touch-sensitive display screens.
The replacement material is a transparent, conducting film produced in water, and based on electrically conducting carbon nanotubes and plastic nanoparticles. It is made of commonly available materials, and on top of that is also environment-friendly.
The research team has been able to achieve higher conductivity by combining low…
