Abstract: We have developed a simple focused laser pruning technique to fabricate two and three-dimensional microstructures made of carbon nanotubes (CNTs). The focused laser beam was found to induced mechanical actuation of CNTs microstructures after they are fabricated. Such behavior can be exploited in creating micro-opto-mechanical devices comprising of microstructures made of well-aligned CNTs. Using this focused laser beam, we have created and demonstrated an opto-mechanical micro-device akin to a simple switch. The input of this device, that is, the presence (ON state) and absence (OFF state) of the focused laser beam can control the electrical response of the device. This technique is convenient, effective and has potential applications in the fabrication of more unique devices.
