US Patent 7298016 - Patterned nanotube ribbons for crossbar circuit

Nantero continues to dominate carbon nanotube electronics (at least in terms of # of patents) with this latest patent focusing on lithographically patterned nanotubes formed relative to a conductive trace. Claim 1 reads:

1. A circuit comprising: a structure having a conductive trace; and lithographically patterned element of pre-defined shape formed from a nanotube layer disposed in spaced separation from the conductive trace.
