Abstract—With current level of development, mankind is about to face many energy-related problems unless we find ways for more efficient power generation and transmission. In this paper, we depicted the operation of high-performance carbon nanotube film heaters, which show a clear advantage over traditionally employed materials. The material was synthesized by a facile one-step method and used as resistive heating element. The results have shown very effective conversion of electric power into heat. To improve the homogeneity of the heaters electrical resistance, we explored a selection of volatile solvents. Such a pretreatment step prior to heaters use caused densification of the material and favorable changes to the electrothermal behavior.

Index Terms—carbon nanotubes, heating elements, electrical properties
