Abstract

The fabrication of uniformly interconnected cupronickel (CuNi) micromesh films on glass and polymer substrates with seamless junctions has been achieved using a simple transfer printing method. When used as a transparent heater, these CuNi micromesh films exhibited an effective and rapid heating performance at low input voltages (below DC 9 V) that can be attributed to the creation of a high quality network over the whole surface area that offers a relatively high transmittance, strong adhesion to its substrate and good mechanical flexibility. A high thermal stability and reliability was also observed relative to a pure Cu micromesh film. Transparent heaters based on CuNi micromesh are therefore considered suitable for providing anti-fogging or de-icing in optics and optoelectronic devices, as well as for wearable heating systems.
