This paper reviews major techniques of aligning carbon nanotubes, either during the growth or by the post-growth processing. A number of post-processing alignment techniques are discussed, which employ mechanical stretching, fracture, compression, friction, filtration, fiber drawing, gas flow, liquid crystals, Langmuir-Blodgett technique, acoustic, magnetic and electric fields. The suitability of those techniques to industrial applications is analyzed.
