In the present work, single-wall carbon nanotubes-transparent conducting films (SWNTs-TCFs) were fabricated at room temperature on a flexible polycarbonate substrate using the ultrosonication-dip-coating technique. Ozone was employed to reduce the sheet resistance of conductive film. As a result, the sheet resistance of film was decreased drastically after 1.5 hr ozone (O3) treatment and could reach up to 170 Ω/□ at 80% T at 550 nm wavelength. In addition, aminopropyltriethoxysilane (APTS) was further applied as an adhesion promoter in order to enhance the adhesion between the SWNTs films and the substrate. Experimental results show that ATPS can greatly improve the adhesion of SWNTs coating to the substrate without the loss of conductivity.
