  • Patent number: 12002602
    Abstract: An optically consistent transparent conductive film and a preparation method thereof solve the problems of obvious etching marks, poor optical stability, easy corrosion of nanomaterials, and migration of metal ions of the metal nanowire transparent conductive film. The addition of nanoparticles with a matchable refractive index and a high corrosion resistance, the addition of an optical compensation layer, the use of a substrate with an anti-glare layer and other such means can solve the problem of obvious post-treatment etching marks of metal nanowire conductive films. A dense full-plate conductive transparent conductive film with improved corrosion resistance can be achieved by using an electric compensation layer. An ultraviolet stabilizer is added into a protective solution to improve the optical stability of the conductive film. An antioxidant, a dendrimer, and a complexing agent in the protective solution solve the problem of easy corrosion of nanomaterials and migration of metal ions.

  • Patent number: 11865786
    Abstract: An illustrative example support structure includes a solid portion printed using a first material and a non-solid portion printed using a second material. The solid portion includes a grid structure, and both inside and outside of each grid unit of the grid structure are filled with the non-solid portion. Hardness of the first material is different from hardness of the second material. A grid density of the grid structure varies within a printing plane, and/or an area of a cross-section of a connecting edge of the grid unit varies in a direction perpendicular to the printing plane. There are differences in strength of different portions of the support structure of the present disclosure, so that an adverse effect of cracking of the support structure caused by a stress concentration phenomenon occurring when the support structure is subjected to a stress during or after a curing process can be effectively prevented.
