Massey, M.K. and Rosamond, M.C. and Pearson, C. and Zeze, D.A. and Petty, M.C. (2012) 'Electrical behavior of Langmuir–Blodgett networks of sorted metallic and semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotubes.', Langmuir., 28 (43). pp. 15385-15391.
Langmuir–Blodgett deposition has been used to form thin film networks of both metallic and semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotubes. These have been investigated to understand their physical, optical, and morphological properties. The electrical conductivities over the temperature range 80–350 K and across electrode gaps of 220 nm and 2 mm have been explored. In the case of semiconducting tubes, the results suggest that Poole–Frenkel conduction is the dominant electrical process at temperatures below 150 K and electric fields of greater than 1 MV m–1. Metallic nanotube networks exhibit a decrease in resistance with a reduction in temperature. This can be approximated by a linear relationship, giving a temperature coefficient of resistance of 10–3 K–1.
