Abstract: AbstractCarbon nanotubes (CNT) possess remarkable physical properties. However, because of their size, they are difficult to handle. Making composites with them gives an alternative way to handle these objects and to make use of their properties at a macroscopic scale. Here, we present a comparative study of the transport properties of PMMA / nanotubes composite films with both SWNTs and MWNTs. At room temperature, the conductivity of the composites follows a pure percolation behavior when increasing the nanot…
