Nanoscale electronics based on carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are much smaller and more versatile than conventional electronics. Despite demonstration of many single device applications, the success of CNT based nanoelectronics is hindered by the lack of a large scale integration technique. Development of an industrially favorable SWNT device fabrication process requires precise assembly, alignment, and integration of SWNTs into nanoelectronic devices at a high rate. We have developed a two step technique utilizing electrophoresis and a dip-coating method, to successfully assemble and orient SWNTs on conductive substrates. A second microfabrication step is carried out to enable electrical characterization of the assembled SWNTs while proving the concept of large scale electronics.
