Abstract

A study was conducted to demonstrate laser-directed assembly of aligned carbon nanotubes in three dimensions for multifunctional device fabrication. The study investigated a thiol grafting method in functionalizing multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) to develop two-photon polymerization (TPP)-compatible MWNT-thiol-acrylate (MTA) composite resins. The composite resins developed had high MWNT concentrations up to 0.2 wt%, over one order of magnitude higher than previously published work.
