An international team of scientists has developed a flexible transparent electrical conductor based on carbon nanotubes that surpasses all existing analogues.

Currently, n-type electrodes made of metal oxides are used in electronics. However, many researchers are looking for efficient p-type electrical conductors that will solve a lot of technological problems..

A new highly efficient flexible transparent conductor has been created

A group of scientists from Skoltech discovered that thin multicomponent layers and fibers made of carbon nanotubes improve the properties of transparent electrodes. In addition, they can be used instead of traditional metal contacts..

As a result, a new design of p-type flexible conductor was designed, which is 90% transparent and has a surface resistance of only 17 Ohm / sq..

Then, together with foreign colleagues, they applied a new electrode in amorphous silicon photocells, which work 16% more efficient than other existing solar cells.

Earlier, we also reported that Skoltech has developed high-power potassium batteries that charge in 10 seconds..
