Abstract

A novel architecture with high-aspect-ratio nanoscale metallic periodic patterns is fabricated as transparent electrodes. The structure shows high visible light transmission and has superior electrical conductivity compared to standard indium tin oxide (ITO) coated glass. A proof-of-principle organic photovoltaic device is successfully fabricated with the electrode.
