Pola Goldberg-Oppenheimer, Dominik Eder and Ullrich Steiner Carbon Nanotube Alignment via Electrohydrodynamic Patterning of Nanocomposites Advanced Functional Materials 21
The patterning of a carbon nanotube(CNT)-polymer composite in an electric field gives rise to a pillar pattern. The pillar formation results in the orientation of the CNTs along the cylinder axis. Above the CNT percolation threshold, a considerable increase in conductivity of the nanocomposite is obtained. This method provides a route for patterning CNTs into tailor-made structures inside matrix materials, which is appealing for the potential integration of nanocomposites into functional devices.
