Abstract

The effect of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) on the optical and mechanical properties of iodinated poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) polarization films for the visible spectral range is briefly considered. The application of CNTs onto iodinated PVA films increases their optical transmission in the 200–750 nm wavelength range and produces their surface hardening.
