Interconnections between Ag- NWs Build by Argon Ions Beam Irradiation

Interconnections between Ag- NWs Build by Argon Ions Beam Irradiation

Interconnection between Ag-NWs is essential for the integration and assembly of NWs networks to enable optoelectronics and nanoelectronics applications. In this report, joining of Ag-NWs through argon ion beam irradiation technology is demonstrated. A range of experimental traits of constructing X-, and II-shapes molecular junctions between Ag nanowires and the utilization of the argon ion beam irradiation induced nanowelding technique to form functional metal NWs networks is conferred. Scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopy results revealed that Ag-NWs are effectively connected to each other on intersecting positions. These networks are optically transparent and crystal structure remained un-damaged. Besides, technical hindrances facing the ion irradiation induced nanowelding technology are also discussed. A perspective is given for using argon ion irradiation induced welding technique for the construction of random networks of well-connected nanowires.
