The ever-growing usage of graphene and different forms of carbon nanomaterials including carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in advanced devices has called for a variety of innovative methods to develop them. Spin-on-CNT is an alternative, low-cost approach to fabricating CNTs into devices. Spin-on-CNT was deposited on two different substrates, glass and SiO2, by adopting four different recipes, leading to four different CNT concentrations. Raman and SEM characterization techniques have been used to verify the soundness of the process and to further corroborate the CNT structure in the deposited layer. The initial results indicate that the uniformity and the area of spin-coated CNT films need to be carefully controlled by modifying the spin-coating speed and concentration of the solution.
