Abstract

Application of high electric field is effective for the alignment of carbon nanotube (CNT) in a nanocomposite film. The conventionally used single pair of parallel plate electrodes is not applicable to large-sized nanocomposite fabrication due to limited output voltage of the high-voltage source. We have proposed an array of parallel wire electrodes to address this issue. The composite material was spread over a thin dielectric layer placed on the wire electrodes. The high electric field region can be extended over a wider area just by increasing the number of electrode pairs. Discrete electric field distribution bordered by the wire electrodes was avoided by linearly oscillated motion of the composite film. A CNT/epoxy resin composite film with a size of 15 cm × 15 cm was successfully fabricated.
