Typical transmission of one OCF2520 Sheet. Please note that the data given is typical, and performance may vary slightly from lot to lot.
Thorlabs' OCF2520 is a pack of twenty optically clear, Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Film Sheets that have a conductive Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) coating deposited on one side. The coating has a sheet resistance of 350 to 500 Ω/sq*, and each sheet is highly flexible and temperature resistant up to 120 ºC.
Measuring 250 mm x 200 mm x 0.2 mm (L x W x T) in size, our ITO-coated PET sheets provide high transmission in the 400 nm - 2110 nm spectral range. Please see the transmission plot to the right for details. The film has a surface quality of 40-20 scratch-dig on the ITO coated side and 60-40 scratch-dig on the uncoated side.
Each sheet is protected on both sides by a thin film that can be pulled off using the included red tabs. A multimeter can be used to verify the side with the conductive ITO coating.
ITO-coated PET films can be used in a number of different applications due to their high optical transmission and conductivity. They can be used in liquid crystal devices to provide a transparent, conductive layer that accepts the applied voltage used to realign the liquid crystal cells. The sheets are also commonly used as components for touchscreens, position sensors, electroluminescent lamps, and electrophoretic displays, as well as in electromagnetic shielding applications.
Sheet resistance is defined as ρ/t: the resistivity (Ω*m) divided by the thickness (m) of the conductive ITO coating. The units are given as Ω/sq (Ohms per square) to differentiate the sheet resistance from the total resistance of some area of the film. The resistance of these films is given by:
R = Rs * (L/W)
where L and W are the length and width of the film, respectively, and Rs is the sheet resistance. For a square of the thin film, where L = W, the resistance of the film is equal to the sheet resistance regardless of size.
