Abstract

Among the various applications of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) that have been investigated since the discovery of their exceptional potential in the electronic field, great interest has been directed towards the creation of carbon-based materials capable of replacing Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) as a transparent electrode. Such transparent conductive films find application in touch panels, LCD screens, OLED displays, photovoltaic cells, and many others. This review presents a collection of techniques that have been proposed during the last decade for the modeling of carbon nanotube-based materials by means of equivalent electrical networks. These networks represent the electrical properties of CNT-based conductive thin films in a way that can be easily included in circuit simulators for the simulation-assisted design of the different devices under static and dynamic conditions. © 2021 by the authors.
