  • We determined the electrical sheet conductivity of silver nanowire-graphene hybrid films from transmission and reflection terahertz time-domain spectroscopy measurements. The sheet resistance extracted from noncontact terahertz measurement is in good agreement with one measured with a classical 4-point-probe technique. The conductivity is well described by a Drude-Smith model and is calculated to peak around 10 THz. (C) 2014 AIP Publishing LLC.
