The conductivity of layers (thickness ~ 0.5-20 μm) of composite nanomaterials consisting of bovine serum albumin (BSA) with single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) has been studied. The BSA/SWCNT composite nanomaterial was prepared according to a route map, some steps of which are: the preparation of an aqueous dispersion based on BSA and SWCNT; preparation of substrates; deposition of BSA/SWCNT dispersion on substrates; application of water paste from SWCNT on substrates; irradiation of layers by lasers when they were in a liquid state; drying of samples; carrying out electrical and temperature measurements. Half of the layer was covered with a light-tight hollow box and the other half of the layer was laser irradiated. The laser irradiation of the layer was carried out for about 20 sec, at which time the layers completely became dry, while the other half of the layer remained in liquid. Conductivity was increased (70 ÷ 650) % by laser irradiation of the layers when they were in the liquid state. Maximum values of specific conductivity for BSA/SWCNT-1 S/m layers, and for layers SWCNT - 70 kS/m. The investigated electrically conductive layers of 99 wt.% BSA/0.3 wt.% SWCNT are promising for medical practice.
