Simple solution spraying coating of graphene oxide (GO) and Ag nanowires (AgNWs) was employed to prepare the transparent conductive films (TCFs). We used air- and ultrasonic spraying and the effects of different spraying methods on the properties of TCFs were investigated. Ultrasonic spraying exhibited a significant decrease in the length of AgNWs and increase of sheet resitance. Thin two-dimensional reduced graphene oxide (rGO) prepared by ultrasonic spraying with a tightly bound conductive Ag nanowires prepared by air spraying effectivley decreased the sheet resistance and increased the transparency of the hybrid films. Air sprayed rGO (0.25 ml)/AgNW (0.45 ml)/polymethylmethacrylate exhibited a sheet resistance of 328 Ω/□, however, the ultrasonic sprayed rGO (0.25 ml) /air sprayed AgNW (0.45 ml) on a polymethylmethacrylate showed a significant improvement of sheet resistance to 86 Ω/□ with a light transmittance of 78%. The sprayed rGO/AgNW showed little change in sheet resistance after 200 bending cycles with a radius curvature of 10 mm.
