A macroscopic block ͑ϳ9 mm 3 ͒ of aligned carbon nanotubes ͑CNTs͒ was grown by chemical vapor deposition and its simultaneous electrical conductivity and compressive strain responses were measured parallel and perpendicular to the CNT alignment. The block exhibits elastic moduli of 0.9 and 1.6 MPa for compressive strain of Ͻ20% in parallel and perpendicular configurations, respectively. The electrical conductivity increases with increasing compressive strain in both configurations. Thedoi:10.1063/1.2798599 fatcat:vlnlgo2sqfb7fb27cany6vgywi
