In this work, silver nanowires (AgNWs) printed on a PET substrate using a bar coater were welded via selective wavelength plasmonic flash light irradiation. To achieve high electrical conductivity and transparent characteristics, the wavelength of the flash white light was selectively chosen and irradiated by using high-pass filters, low-pass filters, and band-pass filters. The flash white light irradiation conditions such as on-time, off-time, and number of pulses were also optimized. The wavelength range (400~500 nm) corresponding to the plasmonic wavelength of the AgNW could efficiently weld the AgNW films and enhance its conductivity. To carry out in-depth study of the welding phenomena with respect to wavelength, a multi-physics COMSOL simulation was conducted. The welded AgNW films under selective plasmonic flash light welding conditions showed the lowest sheet resistance (51.275 Ω/sq), and noteworthy transmittance (95.3 %). Finally, the AgNW film, which was welded by selective wavelength plasmonic flash light with optical filters, was successfully used to make a large area transparent heat film and dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) showing superior performances.

Tunable liquid lasers with organic compounds (i.e., dye) which have a strong absorption band, used as the active medium. During emission, the dye has to be optically excited by another light source (e.g., another laser or flash lamp). The range of the emission wavelength may be anywhere from the ultraviolet to the near infrared (i.e., from 180 to 1100nm). These lasers are operated in continuous wave and pulsed modes. (UMDNS, 2005)

Light sources used to activate polymerization light-cured orthodontic adhesives (DENTAL CEMENTS). Degree of cure and bond strength depends on exposure time, wavelength, and intensity of the curing light.
Penetrating electromagnetic radiation emitted when the inner orbital electrons of an atom are excited and release radiant energy. X-ray wavelengths range from 1 pm to 10 nm. Hard X-rays are the higher energy, shorter wavelength X-rays. Soft x-rays or Grenz rays are less energetic and longer in wavelength. The short wavelength end of the X-ray spectrum overlaps the GAMMA RAYS wavelength range. The distinction between gamma rays and X-rays is based on their radiation source.
