Novel method for fabricating corrugated 3D carbon nanotube microstructures

The method is based on an iterative sequence of chemical vapor deposition (CVD) growth of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and capillary self-assembly. A wide variety of robust 3D CNT microstructures can be fabricated, including microsprings and tilted microcantilevers. The proposed method promises the development of new microsystems, engineered surfaces and metamaterials.
