Abstract

Six types of multiwall carbon nanotube soot were obtained and prepared into buckypapers by pellet pressing and by filtration into a paper. These samples were evaluated with respect to thickness, compressibility and electrical conductivity. DC conductivity results by two-point and four-point (van der Pauw) measurement methods as a function of preparation parameters are presented. Topology was investigated qualitatively by way of scanning electron microscopy and helium ion microscopy and from this, some generalizations about the nanotube structural properties and manufacturing technique with respect to conductivity may be concluded.
