  • Patent number: 8021747
    Abstract: Provided is a transparent carbon nanotube (CNT) electrode comprising a net-like (i.e., net-shaped) CNT thin film and a method for preparing the same. More specifically, a transparent CNT electrode comprises a transparent substrate and a net-shaped CNT thin film formed on the transparent substrate, and a method for preparing a transparent CNT electrode, comprising forming a thin film using particulate materials and CNTs, and then removing the particulate materials to form a net-shaped CNT thin film. The transparent CNT electrode exhibits excellent electrical conductivity while maintaining high light transmittance. Therefore, the transparent CNT electrode can be widely used to fabricate a variety of electronic devices, including image sensors, solar cells, liquid crystal displays, organic electroluminescence (EL) displays, and touch screen panels, that have need of electrodes possessing both light transmission properties and conductive properties.

  • Patent number: 7520933
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method of manufacturing colloidal crystals using a confined convective assembly, more particularly, to a method for manufacturing two-dimensional and/or three dimensional colloidal crystals on a substrate by infusing colloidal suspension between two substrates and self-assembling colloidal particles by capillary action. The present invention can control a convective flow moving the colloidal particles to a meniscus generated by removing the solvent of the colloidal suspension. It is possible to manufacture face-to-face two-dimensional colloidal crystals and/or three-dimensional colloidal crystals within a short time using various sizes of colloidal particles through the control of the convective flow of colloidal particles, which are not easily achieved in the existing method.
