The paper presents the results of creating and researching the transparent heaters with enhanced performance characteristics. The heaters are based on a composite coating of a new type by contrast with classical solutions based on transparent conductive oxide films. Such a composite coating is copper micromesh obtained using a self-organized template, stabilized by a thin film of graphene oxide (GO). The micromesh coating is formed by magnetron sputtering of copper onto a template obtained as a result of self-organized cracking of a silica film. Then, a graphene oxide film protecting the micromesh coating from thermal and chemical degradation is applied to the micromesh coating by the spray-method. A composite coating with the surface resistance of 8.9 Ohm/sq is obtained with the transparency of 82.8 % at the wavelength of 550 nm. High uniformity of heating and stability of the composite coating are shown when operating under heating up to 97.2 °C for a long time (24 hours). The composite coating of the GO / Cu micromesh on a glass substrate 2 mm thick is characterized by the thermal resistance value of 134.2 °C·cm2·W–1, while the ITO literature sample on an equivalent substrate is characterized by the thermal resistance of 94.04 °C·cm2·W–1, which indicates higher heating efficiency at the same specific power dissipation. This fact opens up prospects for its use as an anti-icing coating in aerospace industry.
