  • Abstract Nowadays, transparent conductive films (TCFs) are applied in many electronic devices to provide convenient life for us. The most popular transparent conductive film is indium tin oxide (ITO). However, since the abundance of indium in the earth is limited, the demand is greater than the supply; the price of indium has been rising. Therefore, the researches for alternative materials become more and more important; including looking for novel materials, as well as composite structures to reduce the consumption of ITO.
    This research is to study the performance of multilayer structures that is to incorporate metal layers (e.g. Au, Ag and Cu) and transparent conducting oxides (e.g. ITO). One example is a sandwich structure of metal/TCO/metal, i.e. to use double layers of thin metal films on both sides of transparent conducting oxides. It is expected to decrease the electric resistivity without sacrificing much of transmittance. The thickness of each layer is designed to minimize the reflectivity, hence the transmissivity in the visible range is increased. Our results indicate that to incorporate metals in the multilayer structure, the electrical conductivity can be greatly increased, hence the usage of ITO is largely reduced. In addition, the structure can be also used in other transparent conducting oxides.
