Abstract

Organic composites filled with nanostructures are new group of materials with unique physical properties. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are demonstrating good electrical and mechanical properties. This enables to produce conductive polymer–CNT thick films optically transparent, which are highly useful in production of printed electronic paper. Currently used indium tin oxide (ITO) and antimony tin oxide (ATO) films exhibit high optical transmittance with reasonable electrical conductivity, but very low resilience to mechanical stresses. This is one of the key problems in fabrication of flexible electronic displays. Current authors’ achievements include fabrication of transparent electrodes obtained by screen printing technique, used for production of fully functional thick film electroluminescent structures.
