A researcher holds a piece of silver alloy film as a transparent electrode that is six inches in diameter.

A research team in the University of Michigan College of Engineering succeeded in creating a tarnish-proof silver film whose properties allow for various uses such as high-tech screens. The team’s paper, published last Monday, details the film’s versatility.

As the silver film is ultra-thin, it can be used for displays such the touch screens on cell phones. The film is also transparent, which is why it can be directly applied to solar cells or organic LED displays — increasing efficiencies as the film allows more light to enter solar cells and to leave the LEDs.
