Scalable nanotemplate assisted directed assembly of single walled carbon nanotubes for nanoscale devices
Originally published in Applied Physics Letters, v.90, 243108 (2007); doi:10.1063/1.2747193
The authors demonstrate precise alignment and controlled assembly of single wall nanotube (SWNT) bundles at a fast rate over large areas by combining electrophoresis and dip coating processes. SWNTs in solution are assembled on prepatterned features that are 80 nm wide and separated by 200 nm. The results show that the direction of substrate withdrawal significantly affects the orientation and alignment of the assembled SWNT bundles. I-V characterization is carried out to demonstrate electrical continuity of these assembled SWNT bundles.
