    Silicon is the basis of all electronic devices. Development of new sensors and devices will rely on novel modification of silicon substrates. This report highlights recent progress in the fabrication of vertically aligned carbon nanotube (VA-CNT) - silicon-based architectures. These assemblies are showing particular promise in field emission, as filtration membranes and as scaffolds for mammalian cells. This report discusses fabrication procedures and applications of the novel architectures.
