      Controlled deposition of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) across desired   electrodes is important for the fabrication of nanoelectronic   devices. Dieletrophoresis (DEP) has been recognized as a   convenient and affordable technique for the deposition of   nanotubes and nanowires on electrodes. Although DEP has been   quite well studied for dielectric particles, the application for   depositing nanotubes is still at the early stage of development.   Here, we show that multi-walled CNTs can be deposited by DEP with   controllable density and degree of alignment.
