17 April 2017 Sensitive photoreceiver based on carbon nanotube/tobacco cell composite material

A new type of tissue, based on the combination of tobacco cells and multi-walled carbon nanotubes exhibited good mechanical stability even after more than 2 years of room temperature storage. The original intermediate value of electrical conductivity in coplanar configuration, decreased strongly after high electric field stress before the storage period. In the visible wavelength range optical transmission values between 0.1% and 1% have been measured for the more than 100 μm thick sample. The bio/nano-composite in the low-conductivity state revealed to be a sensitive photoreceiver in the visible wavelength range, when illuminated with white LED light. A notable decrease of the low-frequency current noise amplitude with LED illumination has been observed.
