What is it about?
Nanocomposites based on elastomers and carbon nanotubes are a promising material for soft electronic applications. The work focused on the fabrication of elastic nanocomposites with very low concentrations of SWCNTs to reduce the cost of nanocomposites. The new composites show an extra low percolation threshold of 0.006 wt %, strain sensing (gauge factor of 82 at 0.05 wt %) and EMI shielding (efficiency of 30 dB mm–1 at 0.01 wt %).
