Abstract

original image

Single-walled carbon nanotube films are fabricated from a homogenous nanotube dispersion and a slow-evaporation technique. The transmittance and sheet resistance of the films are evaluated at room temperature. Using nanotube films as conductive substrates for electrochemical deposition illustrates that these nanotube films can act as alternatives to ITO for optoelectronic applications.
