Transparent Screen For New Flexible Touch

- Oct 21, 2019-

As the king of new materials, graphene has now played a big role. It has been found that a transparent screen combines silver and graphene to create a more flexible screen material, which is a bit of a break, although expensive.


The precious and weak smartphone screen will soon be the beginning of the past, and this is mainly due to the latest research results of scientists.


Scientists have combined silver and graphene to develop a screen material that uses a more friendly and flexible environment. Compared with the existing display screen skills, the cost is only a small part. In addition, this new approach promises to use less power, more active equipment, and is not exposed to the air. Because the indium tin oxide used to make smartphone screens is very weak and expensive.


This breaking skill has inherent scalability. Combining silver nanowires with graphene in this way is simple, as long as it is done with a spray and a pictured roller. Researchers have shown that this skill may make the power consumption of mobile phone screens a thing of the past. Adding graphene to the silver nanowire grid can increase the conductivity by about 10,000 times.


“This means we can use a small amount of silver to achieve the same effect, even better performance. As a result, the future screen will be more active and consume less power.” The University of Sussex Institute showed . “Although silver is also a rare metal, like indium, when silver is combined with graphene, the amount of silver used is very small. Since graphene is caused by natural graphite, the content of graphite in nature is very rich, so the touch is made. The cost of controlling the sensor will also drop dramatically."


"One of the problems with silver is that it is unstable in the air, but we found that the graphene layer can block the harm of air pollutants to silver, and the transparent screen obstructs the onset of this phenomenon." We also saw that when When the film is repeatedly twisted and folded, its conductivity is not changed, and in the absence of graphene, we will see the previous display unit handling. This paves the way for the development of a completely flexible screen device. ”
