dc.description.abstract The network of entangled multiwall carbon nanotubes and the composite consisting of a polystyrene filter-supported nanotube are introduced as conductors whose conductivity is sensitive to compressive stress both in the course of monotonic stress growth and when loading/unloading cycles are imposed. The testing has shown as much as a 100% network conductivity increase at the maximum applied stress. It indicates the favorable properties of the multiwall carbon nanotube network for its use as a stress-electric signal transducer. To model the conductivity-stress dependence, it is hypothesized that compression increases local contact forces between the nanotubes, which in turn leads to a decrease in the contact resistance between them. The lack of detailed knowledge of the mechanism as well as an unclear shift from individual contacts to the whole network conductance behavior is circumvented with a statistical approach. In this respect, the conductivity/compression data were fitted well using the Weibull distribution for the description of the nanotube contact resistance distribution. © 2011 IOP Publishing Ltd. en
