Abstract

Single bundles of carbon nanotubes have been selectively deposited from suspensions onto sub-micron electrodes with alternating electric fields. We show that it is possible to control the trapping of a single bundle by the use of Ag as electrode material which, unlike Au, strongly interacts with the carboxyl functionalized carbon nanotubes. Excellent alignment of the bundles between Au or Ag electrodes occurs at frequencies above 1 kHz, with superior contacts being formed with Ag electrodes.
