Electrical and mechanical modifications of devices based on carbon nanotubes (CNTs) using an atomic force microscope (AFM) in the forms of cutting and reconnection of CNTs are demonstrated. In addition to the modifications, electrostatic force microscopy is used to visualize the cutting and reconnection of CNTs. In this way, AFM is shown to be a useful tool in local modifications and manipulations of CNT-based devices.
