In a simple, cost-effective, and solution-based process, a thin-film of single-walled carbon nanotubes is hybridized on a PET film which has been patterned with solution self-assembled Ag nanoparticles. Such a flexible and transparent electrode exhibits a sheet resistance down to ∼5.8 Ω sq−1 at ∼83.7% optical transmittance. The hybrid films are stable under ambient conditions and offer excellent bendability.
