Abstract

Thin films from low-density networks of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) are intriguing new two-dimensional electronic materials because they have excellent tunable electrical, optical, and mechanical properties. Such properties coupled with room-temperature deposition from solution ensure that the material will have profound impact on emerging technologies such as cheap, flexible plastic electronics and smart fabrics and windows. These optoelectronic properties of SWNT thin films make them a potentially good replacement for indium tin oxide (ITO), used widely in photovoltaics, organic, and inorganic light-emitting diodes, displays, touch screens, and smart windows.
