Electrical conductivity in patterned silver–mesoporous titania nanocomposite thin films: towards robust 3D nano-electrodes

Author affiliations

Abstract

The space-resolved electrical conductivity of patterned silver nanoparticle (NP) arrays embedded in mesoporous TiO2 thin films was locally evaluated using a conductive-tip AFM. A remarkable conductivity dependence on the film mesostructure and metal NP loading was observed, confirming a three-dimensional current flow throughout the nanocomposite.
