Deposition of Multiwall Carbon Nanotubes Using Low Frequency Alternating Electrophoretic Deposition
In this paper, electrophoretic deposition of multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) using low frequency (0.01-1000 Hz) AC electric fields, is reported. The effect of depositing parameters such as frequency and waveform on deposit yield is investigated. Results show that the deposit yield decreases with frequency. The rectangular waveform yields more deposit yield than sinusoidal and triangular waveforms. The deposition pattern is also different in AC and DC electric fields. This technique may be used for deposition of MWNTs thick films.
