Abstract

As the size of integrated circuit elements decreases, the properties of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) become increasingly attractive for interconnect applications. To be used by industry, full characterization of the electronic properties of CNT aggregates is essential.

Dielectrophoresis from CNTs suspended in liquid has been demonstrated as a simple route to bundles of aligned parallel nanotubes. We describe a method by which circuits including such bundles may be fabricated, and provide some high-frequency measurements of their electrical properties. The contributions of the contacts can be separated from those of the bundle itself.
