Arc plasma synthesis of carbon nanostructures : where is the frontier ?

  title={Arc plasma synthesis of carbon nanostructures : where is the frontier ?},
  author={Michael Keidar and Alexey Shashurin and Jian Pan Li and Olga Volotskova and Madhusudhan Kundrapu and T. Zhuang},
In this perspective paper, we critically analyse the state-of-the-art of arc discharge technique of carbon nanoparticle synthesis. We discuss improving controllability of the arc discharge synthesis of carbon nanotubes, synthesis of graphene as well as general understanding of the synthesis process. Fundamental issues related to relationship between plasma parameters and carbon nanostructure characteristics are considered. Effects of electrical and magnetic fields applied during single-wall… CONTINUE READING
