Nanoscale electromechanical manipulators, nanotweezers, based on carbon nanotubes have been developed for manipulation and electrical interrogation of nanostructures [224]. The tweezer action is driven by electrostatic attraction between two contacted nanotubes mounted on a tapered glass probe. Manipulators such as these are likely to be integrated with scanning probe microscopy and other measurement systems to provide the tools for the characterization and manipulation on the nanoscale [225].
