A system of simple coordinate markers has been developed to facilitate the identification of individual synthetic nanofibers adsorbed on a substrate. The markers are deposited by electron beam lithography and allow to locate any spot on an atomic force microscope image and to deposit new structures close to this spot, such as lithographic contacts to nanotubes. As a demonstration, current–voltage characteristics of a junction between a metallic carbon nanotube and an n-type V[sub 2]O[sub 5] nanofiber were recorded. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.
