Publication Detail
Synthesis of carbon nanotubes on single crystal diamond
Abstract
Vertically aligned multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) have been synthesised on Ni coated single crystal diamond substrates using a glow-discharge technique. A mixture of gases including CH, H and N has been used for growth. The effect of the CH/H gas mixture and growth temperature on the structure and yield of the MWCNTs has been studied. Atomic force microscopy is used to characterise the annealed Ni film prior to growth. Scanning electron microscope studies have also been carried out to observe the yield, height and diameter of MWCNTs produced under various experimental conditions. Raman spectroscopy has been performed to provide quantitive information on the crystallinity of our as-grown MWCNTs. It has been shown that highly adherent, vertically aligned MWCNTs can be grown on type Ib diamond (100) substrates with an interface free from metal catalyst. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.
