A simple fabrication method for patterned carbon nanotube (CNT) films is presented, using the concept of light-induced dispersibility switching with a photoresponsive dispersant. A comparison with other dispersants highlights the important role played by an azobenzene-derived cationic molecule as a photoisomerizable dispersant in the successful manufacture… CONTINUE READING
