Abstract: The controlled growth and alignment of carbon nanotubes and peptide nanoarrays offers new avenues for nanodevice fabrication. Creating intricate nanoelectronic devices requires the precise patterning of carbon nanotube (CNT) arrays. However, creating such complex and carefully aligned structures at nanometer scales is a difficult challenge for researchers. One fabrication approach that has attracted tremendous interest is the use of templates to control the growth patterns of nanomaterials.1–3 These templates consist of substrates on which a catalyst has been carefully patterned. Synthesis of the nanostructures is then performed on the substrate, which directs their growth and alignment.
