Ionic Conduction Response under Extending-Deformation of β-AgI Thin Films
Tensile stress was applied to β-AgI thin film prepared on a polyethylene terephthalate film, and the ion conduction response in the direction of the tensile extension was investigated. The ionic conductivity of the β-AgI thin film decreases and the activation energy for ionic conduction increases with increasing extension ratio. This behaviour is attributed to the modulation of the crystal framework by the extension of the AgI thin film.
