Effect of Side Groups in Polynorbornene Films for Transparent Conductive Substrates
Abstract:The imide-functionalized polynorbornene films exhibited excellent optical transparency in the visible range as well as high thermal stability over 200 °C. The indium tin oxide (ITO) thin films were coated on the imide-functionalized polynorbornene films at various deposition temperatures by employing radio-frequency (r.f.) planar magnetron sputtering system. The resulting ITO-coated imide-functionalized polynorbornene substrates showed good electrical and optical properties, while the figure of merit examination revealed that the present substrates are comparable to conventional ITO-glass substrates. This was confirmed from the preliminary result of organic light-emitting devices fabricated using the imide-functionalized polynorbornene substrates.
