A novel foam structure of carbon nanofiber–polymer composite (see Figure) with improved electrical conductivity and percolation behavior is reported. This foam structure is very promising for use as an effective electromagnetic-interference shielding material owing to its light weight, electrical conduction, and easy processability.
