An anodic aluminum oxide (AAO) template was formed by a two-step anodization process. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) were successfully synthesized along with AAO pores and the diameters of CNTs equaled those of AAO pores. The lengths of CNTs during a chemical vapor deposition synthesized process on the AAO template were effectively controlled. These AAO-CNTs… (More)
