Abstract

The single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNT) on the cleaved GsAs(110) surface were studied. The study was carried out by using an ultrahigh vacuum (UHV) scanning tunnelling microscopes (STM). A clean transfer of SWNTs from the applicator to the substrate, with the little evidence of undesirable contamination, and nanotubes and surface exhibit no indication of disruption due to deposition process was found. The results show that the SWNTs were transferred to the GaAs surface with minimal additional contamination and no indication off damage to either nanotubes or substrate.
