Study on Piezoresistive of Doped Carbon Nanotube Films

Abstract:

Article Preview

The piezoresistive effect in iodine-doped carbon nanotube films was investigated by a three-point bending test. Carbon nanotubes were synthesized by hot filament chemical vapor deposition. The experimental results showed that the gauge factor for I-doped and undoped carbon nanotube films under 500 microstrain was about 350 and 65 respectively at room temperature, exceeding that of polycrystalline silicon (30) at 35°C. The origin of the piezoresistivity in the films may be ascribed to a strain-induced change in the band gap for the doped tubes and the intertube contact resistance and defects for the undoped tubes.
