Catalysing the production of multiple arm carbon octopi nanostructures


Octopus-like carbon nanofibers with leg diameters as small as 9 nm are reported, with a high yield over large areas, using a unique photo-thermal chemical vapour deposition system. The branched nature of these nanostructures leads to geometries ideal for increasing the surface area of contacts for many electronic and electrochemical devices. The manufacture… (More)
