Title (EN) SHAPING NANOSTRUCTURE ARRAYS
(FR) FAÇONNAGE DE RÉSEAUX DE NANOSTRUCTURES
Abstract:
(EN) Nanostructured assemblies are manufactured by condensing an evaporated wetting agent onto a nanostructure array formed from a plurality of generally aligned carbon nanotubes or other nanostructures. The condensed wetting agent draws the individual nanostructures together to form various geometries of nanostructured assemblies based on various parameters including process variables and the starting shape and dimensional features of the nanostructure array. Various simple and complex geometries can be achieved in this manner, including geometries that are curved, bent, or twisted. Adjacent nanostructure arrays of the same or different starting geometries can be shaped into compound or interrelating structures. Additional process steps such as plasma etching, coating and others can be used to control the shaping and structural attributes of the nanostructured assemblies. A method of making a molded replica of a shaped nanostructure array is also disclosed.
(FR) Des ensembles nanostructurés sont fabriqués en condensant un agent mouillant évaporé sur un réseau de nanostructures formé d'une pluralité de nanotubes de carbone ou d'autres nanostructures généralement alignés. L'agent mouillant condensé amène les diverses nanostructures à se rapprocher pour constituer des ensembles nanostructurés de géométrie variable sur la base de divers paramètres, dont les conditions opératoires et la forme de départ et les caractéristiques dimensionnelles du réseau de nanostructures. Diverses géométries simples et complexes peuvent ainsi être obtenues, dont des géométries incurvées, courbes ou torsadées. Des réseaux adjacents de nanostructures présentant une géométrie initiale identique ou différente peuvent être façonnés pour donner des structures combinées ou interconnectées. Des étapes supplémentaires du processus de fabrication, telles que gravure au plasma, enduction et autres, peuvent être utilisées pour contrôler le façonnage et les caractéristiques structurelles des ensembles nanostructurés. L'invention concerne également un procédé de fabrication d'une réplique moulée d'un réseau de nanostructures façonné.
