  • Publication number: 20130039806
    Abstract: Processes are disclosed and claimed that allow either purification of nanowire slurries or exchange of liquids in such slurries or both. Such processes avoid the drawbacks of other known methods and are readily scalable to larger production volumes.

  • Publication number: 20120301733
    Abstract: Disclosed is a transparent conductive film that comprises at least one carrier layer disposed on the opposite side of a transparent support from at least one conductive layer, and at least one hardcoat layer disposed on the at least one carrier layer. Such films, which exhibit superior hardness, adhesion, and curl, are useful for electronics applications.

  • Publication number: 20120061625
    Abstract: Transparent conductive films, compositions, articles, and methods and disclosed and claimed. Improved abrasion resistance is provided without adversely affecting coating solution shelf life, film resistivity, or film light transmittance. Such films are useful in such articles as electronic displays, touch screens, and the like.

  • Patent number: 7169544
    Abstract: Black-and-white, dry processable thermally developable materials have increased stability after imaging with the incorporation of at least 0.0001 mol/m2 of a thermal solvent having one or more >N—C(?O)— groups. Such thermally developable materials include both thermographic and photothermographic materials.

  • Patent number: 7153636
    Abstract: Thermally developable materials including photothermographic and thermographic materials have an outermost backside layer that includes a combination of a polysiloxane and a smectite clay that has been modified with a quaternary ammonium compound. The resulting outermost backside layers exhibit improved abrasion resistance. The materials can also include conductive layers underneath the outermost backside layer.

  • Patent number: 6991894
    Abstract: Thermographic and photothermographic materials comprise a barrier layer to provide physical protection and to prevent migration of diffusible imaging components and by-products resulting from high temperature imaging and/or development. The barrier layer comprises a scavenger that is a metal hydroxide or ester. This barrier layer is capable of retarding diffusion of mobile chemicals such as organic carboxylic acids, developers, and toners.

  • Patent number: 6764813
    Abstract: A photothermographic film and a method for making same is taught. The film includes a support, a photothermographic imaging layer coated on the support, and a complement film generally confining the photothermographic imaging layer between the support and the complement film. The complement film is applied to the photothermographic imaging layer prior to exposure of the photothermographic imaging layer. The complement film retains any volatile materials present in the photothermographic imaging layer generated when thermal energy is applied thereto to develop a latent image exposed on the photothermographic imaging layer.
