Aligned Carbon Nanotubes: Physics, Concepts, Fabrication and by Zhifeng Ren, Yucheng Lan, Yang Wang

By Zhifeng Ren, Yucheng Lan, Yang Wang

This ebook offers a survey of the physics and fabrication of carbon nanotubes and their purposes in optics, electronics, chemistry and biotechnology. It makes a speciality of the structural characterization of varied carbon nanotubes, fabrication of vertically or parallel aligned carbon nanotubes on substrates or in composites, actual homes for his or her alignment, and functions of aligned carbon nanotubes in box emission, optical antennas, mild transmission, sun cells, chemical units, bio-devices, and so forth. significant fabrication equipment are illustrated intimately, fairly the main typical PECVD development procedure on which a variety of machine integration schemes are established, via functions equivalent to electric interconnects, nanodiodes, optical antennas, and nanocoax sun cells, while present obstacles and demanding situations also are be mentioned to put the root for destiny developments.

All the Y-junctions have very similar shape regardless of their different diameters. TEM observations show that most Y-junctions have hollow cores in their three arms. High-resolution TEM of the Y-junction indicates the Y junction is well graphitized. 5 nm in diameter. The Y-junctions possess unique electronic properties due to their structures, which may be a great advantage for practical applications. The Y-junctions offers more opportunities for the development of nanoelectronic devices and fiber-reinforced composites.
