Research of Transparent Conductive Film Prepared with Polymer
In order to acquire conductive film with high transparency, conductive polymer PEDT: PSS was mixed with some polar dopants and some surfactants. The coating fluid was acquired and coated on the PET film with different coating rods, and conductive film was gotten after drying at some temperature. The conductive mechanism of polymer after doping was introduced. Furthermore, the influenced factors of conductivity were discussed, including different dopants and surfactants as well as dried temperature. It was concluded that DMSO and EG were the best dopants, that surfactants including fluoride or silicon were suited for high conductivity. The sheet resistance of conductive film can be less than 300 Ω/□ when dried at 130 oC, at the same time the transparency at 550 nm is more than 83%. After measuring with AFM, the surface of film was sharp and the surface roughness is 7nm.
