Abstract:
Herein, the temperature‐dependent electrical transport properties of single‐walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) thin films prepared by the electrohydrodynamic atomization technique, are reported. The physico–chemical properties of SWCNT thin films are characterized using X‐ray diffraction, Raman, transmission electron, and field‐emission scanning electron microscopy techniques. The electrical transport measurements are carried out from 285 to 20 K. A semiconducting behavior is observed when the temperature goes down to 20 K. The prevalent transport mechanism is analyzed with a variable‐range hopping model, which is well aided by Raman analysis. Furthermore, the thermal dependence of the electrical conductivity of the SWCNT thin film is investigated using the Arrhenius model, which reveals the conductivity of the SWCNT thin film at low‐temperature shows in the order of mega‐Ohm resistance with a small activation energy of 1.81 J mol−1, and an exponential decrement in conductivity is observed while decreasing the temperature to 20 K, which further confirms the semiconducting behavior of the SWCNT thin film. The Poole–Frenkel conduction mechanism shows best fit for the temperatures 50, 75, and 100 K, and the results provide potential insights into the science and development of SWCNT research.

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
