Single, freestanding carbon nanotubes (CNTs) can be shaped into morphologies with multiple bends or continuous curves by a scanning tunneling microscopy probe, and then fixed in that shape by electron-beam-induced deposition of amorphous carbon (see figure). These shaped CNTs have excellent mechanical strength and electrical conductivites that are as good as those of non-deformed CNTs.
