A multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWNT) is divided into two sections separated by a nanometer-scale gap, using the electrical breakdown method. The gap is filled with pentacene, and the separated parts of the MWNT are used as the source and drain electrodes; electrical measurement of the pentacene in the nanogap is demonstrated. Growth of the pentacene on individual MWNTs is also investigated, where the pentacene grows selectively along the MWNT under the optimized growth condition.
