Combining single-walled carbon nanotubes (CNT) with biological molecules provides a route to novel nanoscale materials with many promising applications in nanotechnology and nanomedicine. Recent experiments show that CNTs covalently functionalized with the coxsackie-adenovirus receptor (CAR) serve as biosensors capable of specifically recognizing Knob(More)
The precise placement of single-walled carbon nanotubes SWCNTs in device architectures by ac dielectrophoresis involves the optimization of the electrode geometry, applied voltage and frequency, load resistance, and type of nanotube sample used. The authors have developed a toolkit to controllably integrate SWCNTs in device structures by the use of floating(More)
Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) have been precisely aligned and positioned in device architectures using ac dielectrophoresis by patterning floating metal posts or strips within the electrode gaps. These structures perturb the electric field, causing local enhancements in the field intensity, as seen in simulation, that guide the nanotubes along a(More)
