Vertically aligned carbon nanotube (VACNT) has been proposed as a promising material for electrical interconnection and heat dissipation, because of its high electrical and thermal conductivity. Defects and impurities in synthesized VACNT, however, lead to unsatisfactory performance in these applications. To improve the quality of VACNT, we systematically studied the effects of various growth parameters on the quality of VACNT, including growth temperature, the amount of water vapor, carbon… CONTINUE READING
