An optically transparent and electrically conductive polyethylene oxide (PEO) film is fabricated by the introduction of individualized single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). The incorporated SWNTs in the PEO film retain their intrinsic electronic and optical properties and, in addition, the intrinsic properties of the polymer matrix are kept. The diameter-selectively individualized SWNTs provide high transmittance as well as good electrical conductivity in PEO films.
