Abstract: This project investigates the use of carbon nanotube films as potential materials for electrical and mechanical contacts. Carbon nanotubes are closed cylindrical objects that can perform as a passageway for electrical conduction. The mechanical flexibility and electrical contact resistance of vertically aligned carbon nanotube films are experimentally investigated in this study. Results are obtained on a laboratory scale and are discussed based on their potential for tests in real world applications. Two main possible applications considered are low force electrical contacts used in micro-scale electrical devices and brush materials within electrical motors.
