This work presents the methodology to synthesize single-walled carbon nanotubes and place them directly on paper utilizing a micro chemical vapor deposition (μCVD) system. In contrast to conventional CNTs (carbon nanotubes) synthesis in high temperature furnaces, the technique of μCVD with localized heating provides the foundation for the direct growth of CNTs on paper. Experimentally, self-aligned CNTs have been directly deposited on printer papers and plastic substrates with a 10-min growth… CONTINUE READING
