Formation process of single-walled carbon nanotubes by the catalytic chemical vapor deposition method is studied by molecular dynamics simulation. We start the calculation with randomly distributed carbon-source molecules and a nickel cluster to investigate the metal-catalyzed growth of a cap-structure of a nanotube. When the catalytic cluster reaches saturation with carbon atoms, hexagonal networks are formed both inside and on the surface of the cluster, leading to their precipitation on the… CONTINUE READING
