The average thickness and mass densities of buckypapers prepared from SWCNT forest with different height
Height of SWCNT forest (μm) Buckypaper Average thickness (μm) Mass density (g/cm3)
350 As-dried 72 0.40
As-dried 62 0.37
Compressed at 20 MPa 46 0.50
Compressed at 100 MPa 41 0.61
700 μm As-dried 58 0.44
As-dried 73 0.33
Compressed at 20 MPa 47 0.48
Compressed at 100 MPa 39 0.62
1500 μm As-dried 73 0.32
As-dried 92 0.25
Compressed at 20 MPa 49 0.50
Compressed at 100 MPa 38 0.65

For each height of SWCNT forest, two as-dried buckypapers, one paper after compression at 20 MPa, and one paper after compression at 100 MPa have been prepared. The thickness of the buckypaper was measured by the stylus method instrument. The average thickness of five measurements was obtained from both of the center and the edge of buckypapers.
