Abstract

We demonstrate an aerosol CVD process to dry deposit large-area SWCNT networks with tunable conductivity and optical transmittance on a wide range of substrates including flexible polymers. These SWCNT networks can be chemically doped to reach a sheet resistance of as low as 110 Ω/◻ at 90% optical transmittance. A wide application potential of these networks is demonstrated by fabricating SWCNT network-based devices such as a transparent capacitive touch sensors, thin-film transistors (TFTs), and bright organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs).
