In this study, micro/nanopatterning and assembly of single-walled carbon nanotube-organic semiconductor composites using dip-pen nanolithography, microcontact printing and fountain-pen nanolithography techniques are described. First, the solubilization abilities of carbon nanotubes with Alcian blue-tetrakis(methyl pyridium) chloride (AB) are investigated by UV-visible spectroscopy. The assembly of the composites obtained by microcontact printing technique shows well-ordered monolayers of 1νm linewidth pattern. Dip-pen nanolithography shows that 11nm height and 100nm linewidth can be obtained on silicon wafer substrates. Finally, fountain-pen nanolithography is shown as a possible large-scale carbon nanotube assembly technique.
