Abstract: AbstractIn order to build electrical devices based on carbon nanotubes, it is crucial to understand the effects of the substrate, electrical contacts, defects and junctions on the transport properties of both multi-wall and single-wall carbon nanotubes (MWNT and SWNT). In the present study two different dispositions are analyzed. In one of them, isolated MWNT were deposited onto an insulating oxide layer over a conducting substrate and platinum electrical contacts were prepared via a focused ion beam (FIB) dep…
