We present a photonic-based post-process, particularly suited for these textiles, that selectively removes defective CNTs and other carbons not forming a threshold thermal pathway. In this method, a large diameter laser beam rasters across the surface of a partly aligned CNT textile in air, suspended from its ends. This results in brilliant, localized oxidation, where remaining material is an optically transparent film comprised of few-walled CNTs with profound and unique improvement in microstructure alignment and crystallinity. Raman spectroscopy shows substantial D peak suppression while preserving radial breathing modes. This increases the undoped, specific electrical conductivity at least an order of magnitude to beyond that of single-crystal graphite. Cryogenic conductivity measurements indicate intrinsic transport enhancement, opposed to simply removing nonconductive carbons/residual catalyst.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Sparkes, Martin</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Di Bernardo, Angelo</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Koerner, Hilmar</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Niemiec, Arkadiusz</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Robinson, Jason W.
