With the rapid development of display-related markets, transparent conductive films (TCFs) with wide viewing angles, high transmittance and low sheet resistance are in high demand. However, as a promising TCF material, metallic membranes with a submicrometer-sized periodicity pattern fabricated by currently available techniques always reveal the angle-dependent structure color which can be a major issue in the development of wide-angle viewing display-related applications. In this work, we demonstrate an Au nanomesh with disordered dual-size apertures as a novel TCF with wide viewing angles which is made via a modified nanosphere lithography technique. The as-prepared Au nanomesh film shows good optoelectronic properties (Rs = 160 Ω sq(-1), T = 80%; Rs = 8 Ω sq(-1), T = 57%) that are similar to the Au nanomesh with single size apertures, while the former exhibits excellent wide-angle viewing performance. There is no obvious change in the film when the viewing angle, the light incidence angle or the orientation of substrate vary in the range of 0-90°. In contrast, a rainbow color is observed with the film with ordered single-size apertures. Electrochromic devices based on the novel metallic film show more uniform color distribution than the devices based on metallic film with ordered single-size apertures under indoor natural light irradiation. These findings demonstrate the applicability of the Au nanomesh film with dual-size apertures in enhancing display quality of high-performance optoelectronic devices.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
