Abstract:
Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) with their attractive properties such as large surface-to-volume ratio, high packing density and long-range order may serve as the potential building blocks for the next generation of nanoscale devices. The integration of ordered arrays of carbon nanotubes onto rigid as well as flexible substrates offers many opportunities for realizing novel multifunctional devices. Here, we present a novel technique for localized patterning of SWNTs networks on a flexible parylene-C substrate by utilizing surface controlled microfluidic assembly technique. After assembly, two-terminal I-V characterization is performed with the measured resistance values ranging from 15K to 21K and the repeatability test (from the same sample) shows the variation of measured resistance is
