Abstract :

The article reports a room temperature direct welding and chemical protection strategy to greatly improve the conductivity and stability of the Ag-NW thin films. It uses a sodium borohydride (NaBH4) treatment process to thoroughly remove the polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) ligands and produce a clean Ag-Ag interface. The studies demonstrate that a proper surface ligand design can effectively improve the conductivity and stability of Ag-NW thin films, marking an important step toward their applications in electronic and optoelectronic devices.
