Chemical vapor deposition enables production of pure, uniform coatings of metals or polymers

InterNano Industry News - July 11, 2015 - 3:45am
In a sense, says MIT chemical engineering professor Karen Gleason, you can trace the technology of chemical vapor deposition, or CVD, all the way back to prehistory: "When the cavemen lit a lamp and soot was deposited on the wall of a cave," she says, that was a rudimentary form of CVD.

Scalable nanomanufacturing of surfactant-free carbon nanotube inks for spray coatings with high conductivity

InterNano Industry News - July 9, 2015 - 11:50am
Abstract Spray-coated carbon nanotube films offer a simple and printable solution for fabricating low cost, lightweight, and flexible thin-film electronics. However, current nanotube spray inks require either a disruptive surfactant or destructive surface functionalization to stabilize dispersions at the cost of the electrical properties of the deposited film. We demonstrate that high-purity few-walled carbon nanotubes may be stabilized in isopropanol after surface functionalization and that optimizing the ink stability dramatically enhances the conductivity of subsequent spray-coated thin films. We consequently report a surfactant-free carbon nanotube ink for spray-coated thin films with conductivities reaching 2,100 S/cm. Zeta-potential measurements, used to quantify the nanotube ink dispersion quality, directly demonstrate a positive correlation with the spraycoated film conductivity, which is the key metric for high-performance printed electronics.
