Conductive nanowires have been extensively studied recently for their potential use as transparent conducting electrodes in flexible electronics, wearable biosensors (wearable electronics), organic light emitting diodes OLEDs, and solar cells [1-3].

Although indium tin oxide (ITO) is a widely used transparent conducting electrode in current device manufacturing, it is not an ideal choice for flexible electronics because of its relative brittleness, more expensive production cost (conventionally by vacuum deposition), and increased difficulty in sourcing the indium metal.
