Polymer fibers have been directly self-assembled into suspended bridges by manually brushing polymer dissolved in a volatile solvent across a microstructured surface. This process is extended by adding multiwall carbon nanotubes to the liquid polymer solution of poly (methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) in chlorobenzene. Suspended nanotube/polymer fibers with diameters between 20 nm and 20 microns (with bulk conductivities as large as 9.91 S/m) are created by brushing. Immersing the suspended fibers in… CONTINUE READING
