Abstract

Have you ever wondered how a gecko can walk up a glass window? Many species of gecko have unique features on their toes, a unique foot-hair structure that could wide scope of applications if successfully mimicked. This MQP takes several steps toward manufacturing Y-junction carbon nanotubes through a chemical vapor deposition growth process to be used as a building block for mimicking gecko foot-hairs.
