About this book

This book presents fabrication approaches that could be adapted for the high-throughput and low-cost manufacturing of the proposed transparent electrode. It proposes and demonstrates a new type of embedded metal-mesh transparent electrode (EMTE) that offers superior electrical, optical, and mechanical properties. The structure of the EMTE allows thick metal mesh to be used (for high conductivity) without sacrificing surface smoothness. In addition, the embedded structure improves the EMTE’s mechanical stability under high bending stress, as well as its chemical stability in ambient environments. These design aspects are then shown to be suitable for larger electrode areas, narrower metal-mesh line widths, and a wide range of materials, and can easily be adapted to produce flexible and even stretchable devices. In closing, the book explores the practical applications of EMTEs in flexible bifacial dye-sensitized solar cells and transparent thin-film heaters, demonstrating their outstanding performance. 

About the authors

Dr. Arshad KHAN is currently a joint postdoctoral research fellow between the Max Planck Institute for Informatics (MPI-inf) and the Leibniz Institute for New Materials (Leibniz-INM), Saarbrücken, Germany. He graduated from G.I.K Institute of Engineering Sciences & Technology (PAKISTAN) with a Bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering, from Jeju National University (South Korea) with a Master degree in Mechatronic Engineering, and from the University of Hong Kong (HONG KONG) with a PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering. Dr. Khan’s current research focuses on printed electronics and digital fabrications for human-computer interactive devices.
