This work is aimed at finding and developing new ways to improve and optimize the characteristics of transparent conductive electrodes based on SWCNT by forming a texture in a continuous layer by combination of lithography and oxygen plasma treatment. A theoretical and an experimental justification for choosing thickness of a textured pattern, together with the experimental results of optical and electrophysical measurements were presented. The resistance of the textured electrode was 187.5 Ohm/sq, which is 17.5% lower than resistance of the electrode made from a continuous SWCNT layer with a same transparency of 95%. An analytical calculation showed that the use of extremely absorbing SWCNT films for texturing allows to obtain ∼ 54% gain in the resistance of a textured electrode compared to a continuous SWCNT's layer.
