Abstract

Substrates with four different nanotube modifications have been prepared and their electron transport properties measured. Two modification techniques were compared; covalent chemical attachment of both single and multi-walled carbon nanotubes to transparent conductive (fluorine doped tin oxide) glass surfaces and chemical vapour deposition (CVD) growth of both single and multi-walled carbon nanotubes on highly doped conductive silicon wafers. These carbon nanotube modified substrates were investigated using scanning electron microscopy and substrates with nanotubes grown via CVD have a much higher density of nanotubes than substrates prepared using chemical attachment. Raman spectroscopy wa..
