1. A touch panel, comprising:
a substrate having a display region and a peripheral region;
a plurality of peripheral leads disposed on the peripheral region of the substrate;
a plurality of first covers covering upper surfaces of the peripheral leads; and
a touch-sensing electrode disposed on the display region of the substrate, the touch-sensing electrode electrically connecting to the peripheral leads, wherein:
the touch-sensing electrode comprises a plurality of modified metal nanowires,
the modified metal nanowires have first surfaces in direct contact with each other at an intersection,
the modified metal nanowires have second surfaces with a covering structure,
the second surfaces are at non-intersections, and
a first modified metal nanowire of the modified metal nanowires comprises a first covering structure contacting a first portion of the second surface of the first modified metal nanowire between a second portion of the second surface of the first modified metal nanowire and a third portion of the second surface of the first modified metal nanowire that do not contact the first covering structure.
