The fabrication of carbon nanostructures by direct writing with a scanning force microscope is described. A conductive atomic force tip is used to collect carbon from a glassy carbon substrate and redeposit it onto a gold thin film under voltage control. The resulting patterns are examined with atomic force microscopy and Auger electron spectrometry. Writing of carbon lines with widths as small as 40 nm is demonstrated.
