Transfer-Printing of As-Fabricated Carbon Nanotube Devices onto Various Substrates



original image

Exact replicas of carbon nanotube devices as fabricated on SiO2/Si substrates are prepared on various non-conventional substrates such as nonplanar or soft substrates (see images) by a simple, yet versatile, transfer-printing “cut-and-paste” method. In this way, harsh growth and fabrication processes can be minimized on the target substrates. The electrical characteristics of transfer-printed devices are compared to those of original devices.
