Conductors – are materials that contain movable charges of electricity. When an electric potential difference is impressed across separate points on a conductor, the mobile charges within the conductor are forced to move, and an electric current between those points appears in accordance with Ohm’s law. While many conductors are metallic, there are many non-metallic conductors as well.
Gold nanomesh conductor could pave the way for truly flexible electronics – The material, a mesh of interconnected gold nanowires, is embedded on a transparent elastomer and could act as a conductor.
