Defects induced on chemical vapour deposition carbon nanotubes during peapod synthesis on substrates.


Individual carbon nanotubes are filled with fullerene molecules directly on the substrate. Two different oxidation techniques for opening the tubes prior to the filling, annealing in air, and acid treatment, are compared. High-resolution transmission electron microscopy images indicate that both methods induce defects on the sidewalls of the nanotubes. In… (More)
