Nanotubes go AC/DC

Abstract:
Carbon nanotubes could be the ideal nanoelectronic components, if only they can be arranged easily into circuits. A new technique uses electric fields to shunt them into line. By judicious use of electric fields, researchers in the USA have been able to reliably position individual carbon nanotubes so that they span pairs of tiny electrodes. This could provide a simple method - and one that avoids harsh and potentially damaging treatments - for arranging nanotubes in electronic circuitry.
