Bottom Line: The double-sided transparent conductive films of AgNWs/PVC/AgNWs using the silver nanowires and PVC substrate were fabricated by the dip-coating process followed by mechanical press treatment.The results indicate that the structure and photoelectric performances of the AgNWs films were mainly affected by the dipping and lifting speeds.At the optimized dipping speed of 50 mm/min and lifting speed of 100 mm/min, the AgNWs are evenly distributed on the surface of the PVC substrate, and the sheet resistance of AgNWs film on both sides of PVC is about 60 Ω/sq, and the optical transmittance is 84.55 % with the figure of merit value up to 35.8.

ABSTRACT
The double-sided transparent conductive films of AgNWs/PVC/AgNWs using the silver nanowires and PVC substrate were fabricated by the dip-coating process followed by mechanical press treatment. The morphological and structural characteristics were investigated by scanning electron microscope (SEM) and atomic force microscope (AFM), the photoelectric properties and mechanical stability were measured by ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy (UV-vis) spectrophotometer, four-point probe technique, 3M sticky tape test, and cyclic bending test. The results indicate that the structure and photoelectric performances of the AgNWs films were mainly affected by the dipping and lifting speeds. At the optimized dipping speed of 50 mm/min and lifting speed of 100 mm/min, the AgNWs are evenly distributed on the surface of the PVC substrate, and the sheet resistance of AgNWs film on both sides of PVC is about 60 Ω/sq, and the optical transmittance is 84.55 % with the figure of merit value up to 35.8. The film treated with the 10 MPa pressure shows excellent adhesion and low surface roughness of 17.8 nm and maintains its conductivity with the sheet resistance change of 17 % over 10,000 cyclic bends.

Fig3: Optical transmittance spectra of AgNWs/PVC/AgNWs films fabricated with different dipping and lifting speeds

Mentions: Figure 3 shows the transmittance curves of the AgNWs/PVC/AgNWs films over the range of wavelength 300–900 nm. From Fig. 3, the AgNWs/PVC/AgNWs film prepared at a dipping speed of 50 mm/min and lifting speed of 100 mm/min possesses a stable transmittance more than 84 % over a wavelength range of 400 to 900 nm, meaning that most visible light can transmit through this film, which is very important for the application of TCFs. While the films prepared at a dipping speed of 40 mm/min or 60 mm/min and lifting speed of 100 mm/min have a fluctuant transmittance that just agree with their microstructure as shown in Fig. 2a, c.Fig. 3
