Abstract

original image

Transparent single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) films have their conductivity optimized by a multistep purification method and by the construction of a sandwich structure with chemical modification. The transparent and conducting SWNT films demonstrate great potential for applications in optoelectronic devices.
