General description

Silver nanowires (AgNWs) are 1-D silver based nanostructures which have a diameter of 60 nm and a 10 μm length. They can be synthesized by the reduction of silver nitrate (AgNO3) in presence of silver bromide (AgBr). They may also be prepared by the arc discharge mechanism of immersed silver electrodes.


Silver nanowires are useful in a wide variety of conductive, optical and anti-microbial applications such as touchscreen displays, medical imaging and sterile clothing.
AgNWs have excellent electrical, optical and mechanical properties which make them a suitable material for flexible electronics based applications such as solar cells and film heaters.
