Motorola Labs Developing Ways to Grow Carbon Nanotubes

Scientists at Motorola Labs are researching ways to improve control in the growth of carbon nanotubes
(CNTs) that can make transistors smaller and faster and chemical/biological detectors ultra-sensitive. One of the technical challenges associated with CNT-based device technology is in controlling the placement of nanotubes with specific properties on a substrate. The Motorola Labs team has developed a technique using chemical vapor deposition (CVD) that can position individual single-walled carbon nanotubes at pre-determined locations on a substrate in a highly parallel manner that is compatible with conventional semiconductor processing
techniques. (more on earlier article)
