We have developed methods to disperse and partially size separate NbSe3 nanowires in aqueous surfactant solutions. These dispersions can easily be formed into thin films. Optical and electrical studies show these films to display sheet resistances and transmittances ranging from (460 / , 22%) to (12 k / , 79%) depending on thickness. For thicker films, we measured the transparent conducting figure of merit to be ?DC,B/?Op = 0.32, similar to graphene networks. Thickness measurements gave individual values of ?Op = 17 800 S m?1 and ?DC,B = 5700 S m?1. Films thinner than ~70 nm displayed reduced DC conductivity due to percolative effects.
