Abstract

The application of microcontact printing (μCP) to pattern silicon wafers with catalysts following the growth of multiwalled carbon nanotubes on the activated regions was investigated. The samples exhibited patterns of high contrast and the pixels were covered by multiwalled carbon nanotubes about 10 nm in diameters and with well-graphitized walls. Results performed with an emission scanner proved the selectivity and quality of μCP, and gave a first insight into the emission properties of nanotube assemblies constrained to certain geometric patterns.
