Placing a carbon nanotube on a microfinger

The nanotube changes its electrical resistance when stretched – so it can sense strain. Jakob Kjelstrup-Hansen here put a 80 nm nanotube down on the back of a microfinger, using a multifingered probe. After that he put electrodes on – this makes it a microfinger with a sense of touch.
You can see how the nanotube gets into focus, and is then “wiped off” on the surface – but sticks to the tool. Nanostructures are sticky, arent they?
