Paper Abstract

We present some early results on the controlled growth of carbon nanotubes inside lateral porous alumina templates. Such lateral templates provide an easy way of organizing nano-objects in the plane of their supporting substrate, with potential densities of more than 100/μm, thus paving the way for the realization of dense circuits. Here we discuss the growth conditions inside the lateral pores of the templates, with the aim of avoiding the parasitic deposition of amorphous carbon. Our organization method should also apply to other nanostructures such as semiconductor nanowires.
