We found the simple, effective and low-cost fabrication method of scanning probe tip with carbon nanotube. The assembling apparatus has been discussed and a plausible explanation about attachment mechanism based on dielectrophoretic force has been suggested. In order to find the proper assembling condition, electric field analysis for the round shape tip has been accomplished. Using this condition, the scanning probe tips with carbon nanotube were fabricated at 25% success rate.
