Electrospun polyamide 11 nanofiber films are used as a flexible guide for the deposition of two-dimensional networks of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs). Nanotubes do not form a continuous coating, but a percolated network guided by the nanofibers. This allows the use of inexpensive MWNTs and leads to electrically conducting coatings with an improved transparency.
