Abstract: Hybrid films composed of reduced graphene oxide (RG-O) and Cu nanowires (NWs) were prepared. Compared to Cu NW films, the RG-O/Cu NW hybrid films have improved electrical conductivity, oxidation resistance, substrate adhesion, and stability in harsh environments. The RG-O/Cu NW films were used as transparent electrodes in Prussian blue (PB)-based electrochromic devices where they performed significantly better than pure Cu NW films.
