Summary:

For single walled carbon nanotubes to find use in electronic and energy harnessing/storage devices, there is a need to efficiently separate them by electronic type, and align them to ensure optimal and reproducible electronic properties. Here, we report SWNT networks deposited from solution, possessing controllable chirality, density and alignment. Applications of these SNWT networks in thin film transistors, solar cells and transparent electrodes will be presented. In addition, I will present work on n-doping of carbon nanotubes and graphene.
