UV-curable monomers provide an ideal mixture for the fabrication of composite materials containing single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) in terms of dispersion stability and excellent processablity. Precise patterns of SWNT composites on a sub-micrometer scale have been manufactured by nanoimprint lithography using a polydimethylsiloxane stamp.
