Summary:

We directly deposit highly conductive transparent carbon nanotube thin film using high pressure carbon monoxide conversion method inverted by Nobel Laureate Richard Smalley which can produce less defect single-walled carbon nanotubes in comparison to other methods, especially by chemical vapor deposition method. The directly deposited carbon nanotube thin film can achieve sheet resistance less than 25 Ohm per square with transmission greater than 95%. This highly conductive transparent carbon nanotube thin films is scalable with low cost, and broad application in lighting, displays, touch screen, solar cells, smart glass/window, sensor, and micro-electrodes for neuroscience.
