Abstract

We report on electrical transport and noise processes of Epoxy/multi-wall carbon nanotube composites. The dc measurements suggest that the investigated system can be regarded as a random resistor network in which the resistors are located at the junctions between carbon nanotubes and the nodes are the conducting pathways connecting different junctions, namely the nanotubes themselves. The noise-spectral density measurements reveal the existence of a threshold voltage, above which a markedly nonlinear behavior is found and is tentatively related to the specific properties of the Epoxy-mediated contact barrier among the carbon nanotubes.
