Self-assembly of carbon nanotube films from room temperature ionic liquids, T. J. Simmons, N. Maeda, J. S. Dordick, R. J. Linhardt, Carbon, 58, 226–231, 2013.
A novel method for the assembly of thin, uniform transparent and conductive films of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) on glass substrates is described. This process involves the initial transfer of a temporary suspension of SWCNTs in room temperature ionic liquid to the surface of water and the subsequent transfer of the SWCNT film onto a glass substrate. The average sheet resistance of the films was determined by four point probe measurements to be 1.52 and 4.13 kΩ/sq, with an average optical transparency of 50% and 63%, respectively.
