In this work, the fabrication and application of highly conductive, robust, flexible, and oxidation-resistant Cu–Ni core–shell nanoparticle (NP)-based electrodes have been reported. Cu@Ni core–shell NPs with a tunable Ni shell thickness were synthesized by varying the Cu/Ni molar ratios in the precursor solution. Through continuous spray coating and flash photonic sintering without an inert atmosphere, large-area Cu@Ni NP-based conductors were fabricated on various polymer substrates. These NP-based electrodes demonstrate a low sheet resistance of 1.3 Ω sq–1 under an optical energy dose of 1.5 J cm–2. In addition, they exhibit highly stable sheet resistances (ΔR/R0 < 1) even after 30 days of aging at 85 °C and 85% relative humidity. Further, a flexible heater fabricated from the Cu@Ni film is demonstrated, which shows uniform heat distribution and stable temperature compared to those of a pure Cu film.
