    Abstract

    We developed a simple and direct thermo-compression method for integrating single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) mats of adjustable thicknesses, transparency and conductivity into polymer films. Produced SWCNT/polyethylene composite films have exhibited good optical transparency and conductivity as well as high mechanical flexibility. It was found that the electrical conductivity of the SWCNT mats could be significantly improved by ethanol densification. SWCNT/polyethylene thin films demonstrated excellent cold electron field emission properties.
