US Patent Number
An apparatus is provided for harvesting a carbon nanotube array from a substrate. The apparatus includes a peeler that peels the carbon nanotube array from the substrate and a support that receives the carbon nanotube array peeled from the substrate. In addition the apparatus includes a drawing device that simultaneously draws the carbon nanotube array from the substrate onto the support as the carbon nanotube array is peeled from the substrate. The peeler and drawing device are synchronized in operation so that as a given length of carbon nanotube array is peeled from the substrate, that same given length of carbon nanotube array is drawn onto the support.
