A. Subramanian, L. X. Dong, B. J. Nelson, "Assembly of Arrays of Individual Lateral Nanotube Emitters on Nanoelectrodes", Proc. of Fifth IEEE Conference on Nanotechnology (NANO), Nagoya, Japan, July 2005.
Composite AC – DC dielectrophoresis (DEP) is used to assemble arrays of individual multi – walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) onto gold nanoelectrodes. The nanoelectrodes are fabricated on silicon chips using electronbeam lithography. Using suitably designed electrodes for DEP or by electrical breakdown of the assembled nanotubes, indivudal nanotubes with one end end protruding from an electrode and the other end in proximity to another electrode are realized. Such nanotube arrays can be used as lateral field emitters, nanorelays and in other nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS).
