The polyelectrolyte of high-strength gels was made to improve the mechanical properties in our previous study. In the field of electronic devices, the demand of polymer electrodes, which have high conductivity, high flexibility and transparence, is increasing. In this study, we attempt to make a transparent polymer electrode by laminating polymer thin film and silver nanowire (AgNW). High transparenct poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) film, which is produced by using solvent cast method is used. AgNW is prepared by reacting Silver chloride (AgCl) with Silver nitrate (AgNO3) based on previous study. The AgNWs taking on different shapes were obtained. Fibrous AgNWs are formed by using high molecular weight polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP). These results showed a possibility of developing the polymer electrode with high conductivity, high flexibility and transparence.
