Researchers from Sweden's Umea University have discovered that the precision deployment of carbon nanotubes can dramatically raise the conductivity of electrical devices such as solar photovoltaic cells.

Carbon nanotubes (CNT) are one dimensional nanoscale cylinders comprised of carbon atoms, and possess immense potential in the field of organic or carbon-based electronics due to their remarkably high tensile strength and electron mobility. Carbon-based nanostructures are already being used as materials in solar cells with increasing frequency, yet their…
