    • Abstract


      Flexible ITO/Ag-grid hybrid layers were prepared by a solution process and embedded into a plastic layer.The structural analysis confirmed that the printed layers were successfully embedded into the plastic substrate without anystructural damage. The detachment of the printed ITO/Ag-grid layers from the glass substrate was carried out by dissolving ametallic sacrificial layer, which deposited on the glass substrate before the printing step. The optimum electrical and opticalperformance was obtained with Ag-grid pitch of 300 $\mu$m, leading to the sheet resistance of 2 $\Omega$ per sq and the transmittance of 85%.
