Applications of chirality-sorted individual single-wall carbon nanotube devices

Author affiliations

Abstract

This highlight explores the applications of single walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) sorted according to chirality, diameter or metallicity in electronics, optoelectronics and sensors. In nearly all applications of individual SWCNT devices, sorting provides a new dimension of functionality and significant improvements in performance. Such devices have been made possible because SWCNTs can now be sorted using methods such as density-gradient ultracentrifugation or selective polymer wrapping and assembled using scalable bottom-up assembly methods such as dielectrophoresis.
