Periodic two-dimensional networks of silver nanowires can act as transparent conducting electrodes (TCE) with low sheet resistance and high transparancy, outperforming the standard TCE material ITO (Indium Tin Oxide). After publishing their research results on the influence of the wire diameter and the pitch between the wires in 2012, van de Groep et al. proceeded their work and showed that, when geometrically optimized, these silver nanowire networks can additionally act as photonic light-trapping structures.
