Engineers create plastic with high transparency and conductivity
Researchers at the University of Michigan (U-M) have developed a conductive plastic coating that is also transparent.
Developed by a team at U-M’s College of Engineering, the plastic conductive was created as part of an effort to improve large touchscreens, LED light panels and window-mounted infrared solar cells.
The conductive metal layer is sandwiched between two ‘dielectric’ materials that allow light to pass through easily. The dielectrics reduce the reflection from both the plastic and metal layer between them.
