In this study, we investigated the inductance properties of as-grown horizontal MWNT arrays with different length and width combinations. Statistical data processing was employed to explore the relationship between kinetic inductance and dimension of CNT arrays. We have experimentally confirmed that kinetic inductance forward scales with the length of CNTs and reversely scales with the number of CNTs in parallel. This work provides a systematic experimental study of CNT kinetic inductance and provides useful data for further investigating the possibility of using CNT-based inductors in RFIC.
