We describe and demonstrate a method of creating arrays of patterned, individual, single-walled carbon nanotubes, including the spectroscopic mapping of the array. The process consists of creating networks of nanotubes suspended between silicon pillars, which are then transferred onto other substrates by an innovative process of direct stamping. Raman spectroscopy is used to spatially map and assign the specific properties of the suspended network prior to transfer. This method provides a simple and inexpensive means for deriving nanoscale devices utilizing individually assigned carbon nanotubes in a robust and non-surface-specific technique.
