Substrate engineering for Ni-assisted growth of carbon nano-tubes

Kolahdouz, z.; Kolahdouz, M.; Ghanbari, H.; Mohajerzadeh, Seyyed Shamsodin; Naureen, Shagufta; Radamson, H.H.


The growth of carbon multi-walled nano-tubes (MWCNTs) using metal catalyst (e.g. Ni, Co, and Fe) has been extensively investigated during the last decade. In general, the physical properties of CNTs depend on the type, quality and diameter of the tubes. One of the parameters which affects the diameter of a MWCNT is the size of the catalyst metal islands. Considering Ni as the metal catalyst, the formed silicide layer agglomerates (island formation) after a thermal treatment. One way to decrease...[Show more]
