Gold nano-mesh synthesis by continuous-flow X-ray irradiation

X-ray irradiation has been extensively used in recent years as a fabrication step for nanoparticles and nanoparticle systems. A variant of this technique, continuous-flow X-ray irradiation, has recently been developed, and offers three important advantages: precise control of the irradiation dose, elimination of convection effects in the precursor solution, and suitability for large-scale production. Here, the use of this method to fabricate Au nano-meshes of interest as transparent and flexible electrodes for optoelectronics is reported. The study includes extensive characterization of the synthesis parameters and of the product properties, with rather encouraging results.
