Abstract

The electrical transport of a carbon nanotube assembly is determined by its morphology and composition. These vary with the assembly production processes and post-process treatments applied. Here, we present the study of the electrical – structural dependence of wire like assemblies of carbon nanotubes i.e. carbon nanotube fibres produced via floating catalyst chemical vapour deposition processes. We propose that the analysis of resistance – temperature characteristics of the fibres provides vast amount of information for the assessment of the quality of the fibres and thus the efficacy of fibre production and post-production processes. To aid qualitative and quantitative analysis of the experimental results we propose a new universal model which allows the fitting of experimental data in the full range of temperatures and a straightforward comparison of the recorded characteristics.
