|Title:||Self Assembly of Highly Ordered Nanowires in Biological Suspensions of Single-Wall Carbon Nanotubes|
|Published:||December 16, 2008|
|Abstract:||We demonstrate the directed self-assembly of highly-ordered nanowires of single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) in aqueous biological suspensions. Macroscopically straight and nearly-periodic linear arrangements of well-aligned individual SWNTs are found to nucleate from surface defect sites in confined geometries. Directed self-assembly is achieved through surface patterning, opening up new routes to nanotube manipulation for optical diagnostics and applications that require well-aligned arrangements of precisely placed SWNTs.|
