Abstract

Basic processes for nanorobotic manipulation of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) inside a transmission electron microscope are investigated experimentally. These processes are fundamental for the characterization of nanoscale materials, for the structuring of nanosized building blocks, and for the prototyping of nanoelectromechanical systems. Multi-walled CNTs, bamboo-structured CNTs, Cutipped CNTs, and quantum dots attached to CNTs have been used as test structures for manipulation.
