Organized 2-D and 3-D SWCNT-Polymer Hybrid Architectures
Institutions: Northeastern University, University of Massachusetts Lowell, University of New Hampshire
Prof. Yung Joon Jung developed a new class of highly organized SWCNTs network-polymer hybrid structures, by incorporating horizontally and vertically aligned SWCNTs in desired locations, orientations and dimensions on/inside flexible polymer matrices forming mechanically and electrically robust unique 2-D and 3-D architectures that have not been previously demonstrated. A combined lateral SWCNTs micro-lines and vertical SWCNTs flexible device was demonstrated with good electrical conductivity and low junction resistance, representing an unprecedented control over growth, assembly, and transfer processes of SWCNTs.
