            The fundamental properties of one-dimensional (1D) carbon         nanostructures and their promising technological         applications have stimulated significant research in         different areas. Because of their outstanding electrical         and mechanical properties, these nanostructures have         emerged as a new class of sensor material with real         potential for a variety of nano-electromechanical systems         (NEMS). Several studies have shown that the performance of         a NEMS device is significantly affected by the material         properties of the nanostructures used to build it. For this         reason, a section of this review is devoted to the         synthesis and properties of 1D carbon nanostructures         including nanotubes, nanofibers, and nanowires. Thereafter,         some NEMS-based sensors using 1D carbon nanostructures are         introduced and issues related to their fabrication         processes are addressed. The goal of this brief review is         to outline the benefits of the use of 1D carbon         nanostructures, the current status of development and         challenges to enable their widespread application as         sensing elements in NEMS devices.
