Foreword

This standard covers recommended methods and standardized reporting practices for electrical characterization of carbon nanotubes (CNTs). Due to the nature of CNTs, significant measurement errors can be introduced if not properly addressed. This standard describes the most common sources of measurement error, and gives recommended practices in order to minimize and/or characterize the effect of each error.

Standard reporting practices are included in order to minimize confusion in analyzing reported data. Disclosure of environmental conditions and sample size are included so that results can be appropriately assessed by the research community. These reporting practices also support repeatability of results, so that new discoveries may be confirmed more efficiently. The practices in this standard were compiled from scientists and engineers from the CNT field. These practices were based on standard operating procedures utilized in facilities worldwide. This standard was initiated in 2003 to assist in the diffusion of CNT technology from the laboratory into the marketplace. Standardized characterization methods and reporting practices creates a means of effective comparison of information and a foundation for manufacturing readiness.

Scope

This standard provides methods for the electrical characterization of carbon nanotubes(CNTs). The methods will be independent of processing routes used to fabricate the CNTs.
