Effects of ozonolysis and subsequent growth of quantum dots on the electrical properties of freestanding single-walled carbon nanotube films Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • A significant challenge exists in probing the transport behavior of chemically modified single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). Thin films of SWNTs offer one facile approach to integration of these materials into electronics and sensing applications. Data on bulk resistivities of 'bucky paper' films created from HiPco SWNTs that were initially ozonized and subsequently decorated with CdTe quantum dots have been collected via 4-point probe measurements. Both the oxidation process and addition of CdTe nanocrystals result in increased bulk resistivities, presumably due to the introduction of additional scattering centers in tube sidewalls as well as charge traps in the CdTe functionalized tubes. © 2007 Elsevier B.V.
