We demonstrate here a PMMA-mediated nanotransfer printing technique for reliably transferring nanoscale building blocks and sequentially building purpose-directed nanostructures. The utilization of PMMA film as a mediator introduced several features to this transfer approach, such as high efficiency, fidelity, universality, controllability, and multilevel(More)
We present a general selective positioning and integration technique for fabricating single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) circuits with preselected individual SWNTs as building blocks by utilizing poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) thin film as a macroscopically handlable mediator. The transparency and marker-replicating capability of PMMA mediator allow the(More)
By using the specifically designed multigap nanoelectrodes, we demonstrated an effective approach for the simultaneous dielectrophoretic separation and assembly of metallic and semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). An approximate metallic-semiconducting-metallic multiarray structure was created by an inward-propagative sequential assembly(More)
We demonstrated the controllable interconnection of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) under alternating current (ac) electric field. The interconnected carbon nanotubes were found to be parallel with the electric flux and increased abruptly with deposition time following a self-accelerating process. Theoretical simulation indicates that the alignment(More)
We report a novel electric-field-enhanced chemical assembly approach for fabricating highly aligned SWNT arrays on a solid surface with remarkably improved efficiency and packing density, which is very important for the real applications of carbon nanotube arrays. With the enhancement of the electric field, the assembling kinetics of SWNTs is remarkably(More)
A facile and green method was employed to prepare large-scale free-standing TiO(2) nanotube (TNT) arrays, in which as-anodized TiO(2) nanotube films prepared in organic electrolytes with thickness ranging from seven to tens of micrometers were then ultrasonicated in a mix solution of ethanol and water. By controlling the ratio of ethanol to water, the time(More)
We report herein a facile electrochemical approach to synthesizing various layered composite films of nanomaterials and conducting polymers, called nanoveneers. Layered structures of polypyrrole film with single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs), graphene, and Au nanoparticles have been obtained by electropolymerization of pyrrole molecules on a heavily doped(More)
In this work, we have demonstrated that the local deformation at the crossed carbon nanotube (CNT) junctions can introduce significant tunable local gate effect under ambient environment. Atomic force microscope (AFM) manipulation of the local deformation yielded a variation in transconductance that was retained after removing the AFM tip. Application of a(More)
We demonstrate herein that organic metal tetrathiafulvalene-tetracyanoquinodimethane (TTF-TCNQ) can serve as an ideal material for source and drain electrodes to build unipolar p-type single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNTs) field-effect transistors (FETs). SWNTs were synthesized by the chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method on silicon wafer and then TTF-TCNQ(More)
