Self-Assembly of Multiwall Carbon Nanotubes from Quench-Condensed CNi3 Films

Abstract

Freestanding, vertical, multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) are formed during the vacuum deposition of thin films of the metastable carbides CT3 (T = Ni, Co) onto fire-polished glass substrates. In contrast to widely used chemical and laser vapor deposition techniques, we utilize direct e-beam evaporation of arc-melted CT3 targets to produce MWCNs that are… (More)
