A study was conducted to fabricate the first transparent film heater, using single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) and investigate its heating performance. Purified SWCNTs were grown using the arc discharge technique, while the vacuum filtration method was selected to fabricate the transparent SWCNT films. The SWCNT samples were purified, using standard processes, such as centrifugation, acid treatment, and membrane filtration. The SWCNTs were dispersed in deionized water, with a 1 wt % of sodium decyl sulfate (SDS) solution and sonicated for several hours. The film transparency was modulated by adjusting the volume of the SWCNT solution between 0.5 and 4.0 mL. The CNT membrane was soaked in NaOH solution for 1 hour, ringed with deionized water, and transferred to a glass or a poly(ethylene terepaththalate (PET) substrate. The CNT film was formed on the front of the substrate and Cu electrode plates were attached with silver paste.
