    We propose a novel, scalable, and simple method for aerosol doping of single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) films. This method is based on aerosolization of a dopant solution (HAuCl4 in ethanol) and time-controlled deposition of uniform aerosol particles on the nanotube film surface. The approach developed allows fine-tuning of the SWCNT work function in the range of 4.45 (for pristine nanotubes) to 5.46 eV, controllably varying the sheet resistance of the films from 79 to 3.2 ω/□ for the SWCNT films with 50% transmittance (at 550 nm). This opens a new avenue for traditional and flexible optoelectronics, both to replace existing indium-tin oxide electrodes and to develop novel applications of the highly conductive transparent films.
