Network behavior in single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) is examined by polymer electrolyte gating. High gate efficiencies, low voltage operation, and the absence of hysteresis in polymer electrolyte gating lead to a convenient and effective method of analyzing transport in SWNT networks. Furthermore, the ability to control carrier type with chemical groups of the host polymer allows us to examine both electron and hole conduction. Comparison to back gate measurements is made on channel length scaling. Frequency measurements are also made giving an upper limit of ∼300 Hz switching speed for poly(ethylene oxide)/LiClO 4 gated SWNT thin film transistors.
