Nanorobotic handling and characterization of carbon nanotubes inside the scanning electron microscope
161 Seiten, Dissertation Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg (2011), Hardcover, B5
Carbon-based nanomaterials such as mono-layered sheets of carbon, so-called graphene, and especially carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have become promising materials in nanotechnology. The extraordinary physical properties of CNTs are the reason for a multitude of potential applications that are foreseen in different areas.
Using current fabrication techniques the exact geometric properties of CNTs, and thus their physical characteristics, are not completely controllable. Chemical vapour deposition (CVD)-based techniques might become completely compatible with standard micro fabrication techniques in the near future and seem to be the best approach to realize the direct synthesis of CNTs in future devices.
However, the micro-nano-integration of CNTs into existing micro systems is one of the main challenges. In order to optimize the fabrication techniques and to allow the assembly of CNT-based prototypic devices, reliable handling and characterization of CNTs is required. The main idea of this work, therefore, is the development of novel nanorobotic methods for the handling and characterization of individual CNTs.
