Nanoindentation and VSM of Silver Nanowires Synthesized by Microwave-Polyol Process

Nanoindentation and VSM of Silver Nanowires Synthesized by Microwave-Polyol Process

In the present research paper, silver nanowires have been synthesized by the polyol process in ethylene glycol as a reducing agent, polyvinylpyrrolidone as a stabilizer, using microwave technique. After synthesis 5 mm thick pallets of silver nanowires are prepared by making a paste in isopropyl alcohol and using polyvinylidene difluoride as a binder and then these pallets have been used for nanoindentation measurements. Hardness, reduced modulus, stiffness, contact height and contact area have been measured using nanoindenter. Magnetic properties of silver nanowires have been studied using vibrating sample magnetometer reveals absence of ferromagnetic impurities.
