Abstract: We present a fast, high yield, low cost method for the production of scanning probes with aligned carbon nanotubes protruding from the ends. The procedure is described and images of undercut films are used to demonstrate the improved probe quality for topography measurements. A magnetophoretic model of the attachment and alignment processes is discussed.
