In laser processing of silver nanowire transparent conductive film covered with an acrylic resin layer, effects of pulse duration on electrical insulation and surface quality were experimentally investigated by using nanosecond pulsed laser. The minimum laser fluence to achieve the stable electrical insulation by removal of silver nanowire became small with decreasing the pulse duration, but shorter pulse duration showed drastic change of removal trace area of silver nanowires at the boundary region of laser fluence to change conductive state to insulation one. In contrast, longer pulse duration around 200 ns indicated almost constant small removal trace area of silver nanowires, and wide processing window to perform the stable electrical insulation with small removal trace area of silver nanowires can be expected by using a proper long pulse duration in nanosecond pulsed laser processing.
