Abstract

Single carbon nanotube (CNT) has exceptional electrical and mechanical properties. And CNT fiber is an interesting application because it can become the wire which is more excellent than exiting one. Some groups reported the fabrication of CNT fiber spun from vertically aligned CNTs forest (VACNF), but mechanism of spinning has not clear yet. In this paper, we present the optimum parameters for spinnable VACNF via the difference between spinnable and unspinnable VACNF.
