Lay Summary (English)

Lead
Lay summary
The aim of this project is to establish new approaches to make full use of the current status of carbon nanotube (CNT) research in order to verify potential applications as macroscopic fibers and thin films of random networks for FET applications. We want to carry out cutting-edge interdisciplinary studies involving chemical approaches to obtain extraordinary physical properties in macroscopical arrangement of CNTs.
To reach these objectives, we will produce single- or double-walled carbon nanotubes using catalytic chemical vapor deposition method. We will optimize the growth condition in order to obtain high yield and high structural quality and use them for assembly i) into macroscopic fibers and ii) into thin films containing random array of CNTs.
