Solution-based copper nanowire-graphene oxides are promising building blocks in future optoelectronics ranging from transparent electrodes to electrochromic displays to stretchable electronics. In this paper, a detailed study of the optical properties extending to non-linear properties is demonstrated. An enhancement of 43% is observed for the nonlinear optical properties of these thin films in comparison to a graphene oxide thin film. Moreover, its application as transparent conductive electrodes with 93% of the optical transmittance and a sheet resistance of 10 ω/sq is manifested.
