3D nanotube assembly technique for nanoscale electronics
October 23, 2008 | Source: PhysOrg.com
Northeastern University researchers have developed a method for high-volume manufactuing of three-dimensional, single-wall carbon nanotube electrical interconnects without the need for high-temperature synthesis.
They assemble the nanotubes into 3D structures by using an applied electric field to coax the nanotubes into deep nanoholes in a porous alumina template.
The method could also integrate well into existing silicon platforms for use in microelectronics, field emission displays, electronic memory devices, and solar cells.
