We have proposed an easy method for growth of well-aligned patterned CNTs arrays using 3D cubic ordered mesoporous silica films as the catalyst support combined with the soft-lithography technique. This synthetic approach shows fascinating possibilities for directed growth of CNTs that could be used for large-area, low-cost, flexible electronic and photonic devices.
