Recently our group has developed two distinct methods of directed self-assembly of extremely high aspect ratio nanostructures. In one method a periodic micromachined array of vertical pillars is hand-brushed with a liquid polymer or nanomaterial-polymer composite leading to the spontaneous formation of two-point suspended nanofibers air-bridges and trampoline-like membranes (S. A. Harfenist et al., Nano Lett. 2004, S. Pabba et al., ACS Nano 2007. In some cases fibers as small as 10 nm diameterdoi:10.1109/ugim.2008.43 fatcat:dqlnqkzptvc4zgfij5taa5chta
