Self-oriented Regular Arrays of Carbon Nanotubes


Stanford Reference:

98-163


Abstract


Stanford researchers have developed a method for generating large-scale regular arrays of carbon nanotubes that self-orient onto silicon substrates. The nanotubes are up to hundreds of microns long and self-align normal to the substrate. Applying this method allows for precise control over growth areas and nanotube length.

Applications


  • Scanning probes and sensors
  • Field emitters and arrays
  • Nanoelectronics
  • Flat panel displays

Advantages


  • Simple, reproducible technique using commercially available equipment
  • Precise control over growth areas and nanotube length
